External SATA with USB connection won't mount

Postby Jolicoeur on Tue Mar 12, 2013 7:37 am

Ok, I have a sata hard drive with mint Cinnamon os on it and files and also a back up sata that would just plug into my tower. tower is not working and I wanted to connect one or both of these drives by usb to my laptop, laptop runs Mint mate. the drive (s) won't mount. tried on my wife's windows 7 laptop and still won't mount. On windows it won't recognize them at all but on Mint Mate the laptop sees the drives but won't mount them. can anybody help? I have everything backed up on crashplan but would like to avoid many many hours of restoring and just use my sata drives for restoring. plus they are good drives and would like to use them again. thanks
