MSI Starbox SATA external hdd

    Hi, this is my first post here, I hope we'll find a way to solve my problem.
    About three years ago I got a MSI external sata 2.5" hdd. First time when I plugged in my usb port everything worked fine, as few times after that. Then there was a pause in using this hdd because it is not needed at the time. After maybe a year I tried to read some data from that hdd and it said "Device attached to usb port have malfuncioned....", and I putted it in box and that was it. Now I need that hdd again and when I plugged it in it says the same thing as then. I connected directly to motherboard with sata cable and formated it as NTFS. Ofc, I copied the data from it. It works well when I plug it as regular hard disk but with usb cable it doesn't. Is there any MSI software that can help me or some advice. I have XP SP3.
P.S. I have original box if you need serial number or etc.
    Best regards, Nikola

its probably the board on the Starbox that works as a SATA to USB converter has gone bad but you could try another USB cable too just to rule that out but it may be unusable if the PCB that is the interface has developed a fault!
