iPod hard drive is write protected when used in an external enclosure
I have just replaced the hard drive of my 5.5gen 80gb ipod with a new 240gb 1.8" hard drive and all is swell!
I wanted to use the old 80gb hard drive as an external drive so I purchased a ZIF 1.8" enclosure http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/310571032275?s.... The problem is that I can not "see" the drive in 'My Computer" (Windows 7). In Disk Management when I try to initialize the drive it says that "the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error".
I have also tried EaseUS Partition Master with no luck as it says that the drive is write protected. I have tried through DISKPART (Windows 7) and used the "attributes disk clear readonly" command with no luck either.
Any suggestions please?
Is this a good question?
