have got a samsung 1TB usb hd with all my saved stuff on. i went to use it the other day and the white power light blinks, so removed hd and put it into a caddy but no power light but when i take the hd out the power light comes on. so pluged it into yhe sata lead in my tower and when i switched it on it blew the fuse. can i retrive my data or test my drive.
An unconvential thought. Remove the HDD and tap it on both sides physically. How hard you hit it is up to you. Sounds like something physically has 'wedged' or is not moveable electronically. If you get it to work (spin) no doubt Windows will see it as a 'raw' format so you will need to use a recovery program to recover your files. No harm in trying.
