Hey y'all, I have a Simpletech External Hard drive 149gb model 96300-40001-001... went to turn it on today and the red lite flashes on and then off... NOTHING! The little red light flashes on and then off. Dont know if its the ac adapter power cord or not. Have tried plugging into other outlets and still nothing. Any ideas? PLEASE HELP... I WANT and NEED my info on this hard drive!

Obviously the first thing you need to do is to determine whether the adapter is good.

If it is OK, then you would need to extract the HDD from the enclosure and attach it directly to a computer motherboard, or install it in another external case.
