    How to check or repair "external" Harddrives?

    Have to make readable two drives, one 80gb used in a winxp-system which is showing up shortly in win7 but data cannot be seen.
    500gb removed from an older WD-enclosure the famous one(which i also have) where on/off-switch is rather non-perfect, no really reacting when it should.
    yet i will also use knoppix live DVD. i am actually on a winxp-system with a different docking-station by orico. both usb3.0.
    on the latter-500gb-enclosure light is not lit.
    i warned my friend to use a new backup-drive when the old was already working. but no he wanted to use it also on his win-7-pc.
    yes also a 2.5-1tb-enclosure exists. maybe since win7-time.

    Can read 80gb Maxtor on other Orico USB 3-docking station on esata-winxp-pc. maybe i should try esata on win7-pc instead of USB 3.0.
    NB: reg. WD-enclosure 500gg drive. I warned the friend multple times to give up that drive for a newer one.
    yes he has 2.5" also.
