Hi,

I've bought recently a Lacie 1 TB external hard drive, and unfortunately, some days ago, I plug in the laptop connector instead the right one. Since that moment, it hasn't work anymore. I've open the disk to recover the data, but there seems to be a problem with the SATA drive, it doesn't work either. Someone can tell me solution?

Thanks.

What was the DC (direct current) output of the laptop power supply? Does the external HDD state the needed / max DC?

Does the drive make any sound at all? I would lean toward the drive being fried.
