Drives (2x 8tb) aren't showing in explorer or disk management?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've tried different sata cables, different power cables (whatever those are called from the psu), restarting computer, shutting down, unplugging, etc. I also took the power and data cable from a working drive and plugged it into both the 8tb drives and still neither show in windows 10.

 

Both were working perfectly this morning... Now neither are showing and don't feel like they're spinning either anyway. What can I do? Note that earlier I did install a new cr2032 battery...

What happens if you plug them into a different computer?

I don't have another computer so don't know...

Do you have any way to test if the drives are receiving power at all? Do you have a external dock? You could borrow a power cable from drives that are showing up properly.

Well see I removed the power and sata cables from the working drives and plugged them into the non working ones and nothing happened.

You might possibly have two dead drives then if you have a known good cable and they don't spin-up at all. Are they still under warranty?

The linked mod will bypass PWDIS, which uses one of the 3.3V pins to spin up/down the drive (for management in a server). Obnoxiously, it's spin down on voltage high, so you need to block the pin on a standard SATA connector to have it work.

Omg I think you're right and I just totally forgot to do that again. Most likely when I was doing work on my computer the piece I was using to cover that pin fell off. I think this is the answer. 😊
