    I changed my dynamic hdd to a basic hdd without losing data by following these two tutorials...(Maxtor 30gig ide) light=dynamic+disk 1/17/Converting-Dynamic-Disks-Back-to-Basic-Disks. aspx

    Then I connected the hdd to my desktop and notebook using a usb-ide connector, but...

    The drive appears in Windows Explorer and Disk Manager, but I can't access the drives' contents...

    In Disk Manager, it appears but it doesn't have an NTSC/FAT classification. If I try a disk error scan, nothing happens. And chkdsk won't work in Dos mode.(Although the chkdsk error message does say that it's an NTSC drive)

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. :)
