hi,

my ext hard drive has packed in, i sounds like its running but doesnt open up in my pc, makes a noise like a cd trying to load over and over! the wee light that normally stays on solid is flashing about every 30 secs!

if the drive isnt fixable can the info be retreived?????

thanks, jason

this could be a usb problem try uninstalling usb root and rebooting.
