Re: 2.5 enclosures
If this is a USB enclosure, depending on the type of disk installed, it may
be that the USB port on your laptop is unable to supply enough power to
allow the drive to properly initialise. I have found this to be true when
using a 60GB IBM TravelStar and also when using a 100GB Seagate Momentus,
but not with smaller and slower (30GB Toshiba 4200rpm) disks. The solution
was to use a powered USB 2.0 hub.
