Problem with Seagate Go Flex Home drive

  chelseafan22 12:01 18 Nov 2014

I have a Seagate Go Flex Home drive connected to my network which I have used mainly to act as a store for .mp3 files to be played back via a network player. Looking back it may have always been temperamental from the start (2 years ago) but I put that down to my network.

However it is no longer accessible by my PC (it doesn't appear as a drive in Windows Explorer), and the files are not visible on the network player or the players app on my iPad).

The white light on the base unit is off - which according to the handbook means that it isn't installed or is experiencing a problem. I have tried a reset which immediately caused the white light to start flashing and then go steady, but the unit did not then switch off as per the reset instructions.

Can anyone advise on anything else I can try or is the unit likely to be dead?
