This is a Seagate 250 GB IDE drive. I have a Sabrent interface. The drive is not shown on Disc Management or under MY PC. A Maxtor 80 GB IDE drive connected in place of the Seagate is shown on Disc management as drive "L".

The Seagate does spin up and does sound like it is doing track searches. I have tried all combinations of jumper selections with no change in status.

I tried the Recuva but since it is not recognized in disc management, nothing changed.

I am in the process of purchasing an identical drive to be able to swap the control board if that is a suggestion.

The owner states the drive is full of songs and pictures so it would be nice to be able to recover the data.
