  1. I used the external USB enclosure and didn't have the drive recognized. Connecting it directly to the PC fixed the problem: Juergen
  2. The photos, screenshots and instructions that are on the lower part of that e-bay page are pretty comprehensive as far as the hook-up is concerned. All you have to do after that is to follow the steps as given in this thread. Juergen
  3. Well, it does look a lot more sophisticated than my contraption... Juergen
  4. Thanks. I suppose I should have tried that first. All is well, the BIOS sees it and I can even boot the computer from it. Now I've got to figure out why the SATA -to-USB dock did not see it, but that is a project for another day... Juergen
  5. After finally establishing a connection with my ST3500620AS HP24 via a cloned CA-42 cable (it took forever to find a driver), I wound up with the following output: F3 T>m0,2,2,,,,,22 Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewr ite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 00 secs F3 T> Note, the elapsed time is 0, 00 and at least one line seems to be misssing. The drive is still not recognized by a SATA to USB Hard Drive Dock. What am I missing? Juergen
