Hey guys, I have two WD 120GB JB drives that stopped working at the exact same time. By not working, I mean they are *sometimes* detected during boot-up and they hang explorer.exe. I figured my mobos Promise ATA controller (A7V133) was going so I put them in other machines, but the same problem occured. On one of them I ran the WD diagnosis utilities which didn't find any problems; I even wrote all 0's to the drive, but nothing was wrong.
Being more specific, let's say the drives are detected and Windows boots up, they show up in the Disk Management utility and in My Computer. Now, if I click on one of the drives it shows the root directory, but if I try and access anything below the root directory explorer.exe hangs.
I also tried hooking them up to my normal IDE controller, but that doesn't work either. Any ideas or suggestions? I'm current playing games off a 20GB 5400RPM drive and it sucks, not to mention I'm out of space!
