I can't do the raw backup because it won't recognize it to the point where it sees sees it. It just says that it's there under device manager-disk drives-volumes-populate. Beyond that I can't access it. I'll try your suggestion tonight or tomorrow when I get the time to rip a PC apart to get into it that far. I've never had any trouble swapping drives out like this before so I thought(hoped) it might be easy.
Pessimist: Oh, this can't get any worse!
Optimist: Yes, it can!
