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... aliceschesya March 22, 2013 4:30:49 AM My S2 has stopped working as well after only 8 months. I thought that Samsung were a reputable manufacturer. They clearly have problems. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
