As kindof a setup for my problem, I have been building a home NAS as a backup for all the video that I do out if some old computer parts and 4x2T western digital caviar green HDD. I wanted to use the HDD (WDC Black 80G) from the old compter as a system disk but when I plugged it in, it was not recognized in the BIOS. That same day it just so happened that I had a pump failure on my primary system's water cooling loop. I thought to myself "this would be a good time to pull the HDD (with ALL my data) and move it to the NAS and just back it up. When I plugged it into the mobo (have a RAID controller for the other 4 HDDs) it did not recognize that disk either. Tried changing SATA power and data cables and different SATA ports but nothing worked.after a couple hours of trying to get it to work I gave up, fixed my pump situation and put my HDD back into my computer... Where it would not recognize the HDD in the BIOS. In both cases (on the NAS server and on my PC, it will recognize the CD/BR player) There is no way that the same failure could occur on 2 very different disks on the same day without a common problem. Is there any way that the MOBO or RAID card could have caused this? Mobo is a Foxconn G33M05-8EKS and RAID card is Adaptec 2405. Please help! I have a lot of data on that HDD. I could junk it and pay for a new one, I just want the data.
