I got my dad a 100gig drive for his laptop and was going to ghost his old drive to it, well the adapter I was using to connect the laptop drive to my computer shorted out…now the drive is not recognized at all…it spins up but is not recognized in the bios…every time I do work for family it cost me an arm and a leg!!!

Hitachi, Travelstar 60GB

thanx

If the BIOS doesn't see the drive you're usually SOL.
Is there any damage to the PCB, like burn marks or an exploded circuit?
