New Dead Firecuda suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I feel like I should know the answer to this as this wouldn't be my first dead drive, but I just bought a FireCuda online and it's not working at all.

I've tried swapping out the SATA and power cables, switching the port on my motherboard with one I know to be working, to no avail.

Do I have a dead drive, or does someone have any last suggestions for me to try before I return it?

 

Cheers folks

Do you have other drives which can use these firecuda powerline connector and sata connector, if you already tried, when try to connect firecuda with power and sata cables turn on pc wait for ~1min and then restart if then does not work then you have dead drive.

Seems it's just a dead drive, it's not even being picked up in disk management or BIOS, tried with the cables from the other older HDD in there, still no dice.

Thanks for the tips lads
