SATA HDD in an external case over USB - 2 partitions

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



I had to re-install windows on my laptop, and also wanted to try Fedora 13, so 
I came up with the idea of replacing the HDD and doing the installs onto 
that.

This has worked fine, and I now have a clean (but still flakey) WinXP install, 
and F13 dual booting fine.

I have now the old HDD in an external chassis connected via USB.

My problem is that neither OS will allow me access to either of the partitions 
on the old HDD. Both see the USB->SATA bridge, and see the HDD but neither 
will allow me access to the contents.

Windows just sits and smiles at me. Linux says it cannot access the drive.  
Can anyone help?
