the above hard drive has stopped working. The blue light is on and stays on. I am sure it used to flash, but not 100% sure of that. all I know is that it is no longer recognised by my laptop ?

My Samsung S2 also died... it turned out that the sector that contains the partition table is not usable anymore, which renders the entire drive useless. See http://ronaldlan.dyndns.org

These drives are no longer on the market, and another Samsung drive I have also has bad sectors. I will not buy Samsung drives again...

My S2 has stopped working as well after only 8 months. I thought that Samsung were a reputable manufacturer. They clearly have problems.
