There is no such thing as setting master osr slave by wire anymore. Double and triple check your jumper settings...

In many cases, ther still is. My computer is only a year old, but it still relies on a master and slave system -- it'* how the computer identifies what drive it'* working with. If both are set for master, both are set for slave, it will pick one drive and stick wit hit, or it may just decide it can't see either.

Try reversing your jumpers -- it'* good practice to set the boot drive as the master...

NOOOOOOOO!!!!

DO NOT partition, format, or in any way touch that drive! If you do so, you're much less likely to get back your data!
