A friend gave me a desktop hdd and he said he thought there was a head
crash, but I thought that if that was the problem, powering the drive would
make sounds.
I put it in a desktop and booted to an ubuntu live cd, but the drive
wasn't accessible, didn't make any noise, and didn't vibrate.
What else could be the problem? the on board circuitry is dead?
