Is hdb still visible from BIOS, does 'fdisk -l' know about it?


Cheers,

That probably means that the second hard-disk died, which makes
being unable to mount it fair enough.

I don't know - you didn't really say whether the BIOS still
can see the device; it's also possible that just the cable
came loose, or that the contacts are corroded.
Remedy might be easy.

But it's something that you may have to expect (e.g. if the
electronics burnt out, or the head(s) crashed on the surface
of the platters). In either case a (highly expensive) specialist
service may be able to recover the data. But it's another good
time to point out the importance of back-ups.


Cheers,
Tink
