Hello all, I have a 1TB Iomega external HD. This morning I was using my computer normally, saw a "USB device not recognized" warning from Windows, glanced at my HD and watched the white light turn off for what appears to be the last time. I do not believe that the drive itself is dead because there was no warning (no click of death etc) and when I turn the drive on it does not even attempt to start. It's completely dead. It does not appear in My Computer OR disk management and I have tried it in different USB ports and different computers.
Hate to self-bump, but another query: if it is the power supply can I retrieve the data? I've heard things about connecting it to a desktop or something by taking off the USB connection and connecting it directly with the SATA but I don't know how to do that precisely.
