Hi all i have a Western digital external hard drive which i plugged into my laptop and a message appeared on the screen saying power surge and now the hard drive isnt recognised by my pc or laptop, any ideas what the problem is, only have it two months old but there is stuff on it which i need.

Seems a like a USB port problem.
Does power on hard drive show signs that drive is on, i.e power light, sound of drive spinning?
