Cant get pc to see a 2.5 laptop drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had a 500GB drive in my PS3. Im trying to copy the contents of that drive onto my PC. However I cant get my PC to see the drive. Any suggestions?

Ive got it hooked up to my pc through a sata to usb adapter. Ive tried hooking it directly up to the PS3 as well to direct copy the items, but doesnt seem to recognize there is an external drive...

You will most likely have to go into Disk Management and "Initialize" the disk in order for Windows to see it, and most likely have to see if their is a 3rd party tool to allow Windows to see the file system that the PS3 drive uses. Good luck!
