Hello. I had a SATA hd go bad on me recently and stopped booting and being recognized in BIOS so it wouldn't load OS. I tried hooking the drive to another computer to see if I could salvage any data, but it's not found in BIOS when the SATA interface is turned on nor seen in Windows. That's pretty much the end of the road in most cases. I tried putting it in the freezer for a while which didn't help either. Now I've taken the drive apart, removed the actual disc and put it into another hard drive case to see if that would be able to find the drive ID but BIOS still doesn't see it. (when I put the other hard drive's disc back in, it works). My question is whether you can actually put a hard drive's disk into another hard drive's case and have it work (if it's good). Thanks.
