    x25-v seems to be "on strike"


      Hi All -


      I recently purchased an x25-v SSD from amazon. Before plopping it into my computer, I popped it into an enclosure to make sure that the drive is alright, and it doesn't seem to be. Rather than behaving as a hard drive should (popping up in my computer, being available for chkdsk and such) it has decided to label itself "protected" and sit idly on my desktop.


      I have tested the enclosure with another SATA drive, as well as the hard drive in both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04.


      Is this a problem people are having? Thanks for any advice...I would add more technical details but I'm new to the hard drive discussion and am not sure what might be of value.


      Best -
