Hi

All of a sudden I can't power the disk at all. Not sure if I should take it of the USB Enclosure and then if I can trying using the kits (video's on Youtube) where I can just attach the Disk using the kit to PC directly outside of enclosure.


Any help would be highly appreciated. I have some important family pictures on it.

Thanks

Your problem description is a little vague.

Does the drive spin up? Does it make any sounds?

Is it port powered, or does it require an AC adapter?

Apologies, The drive requires a AC adapter, It does nothing at all. It is supposed to show a light in front, but that doesn't come up, there is no spinning at all, and no sounds at all.

I hope this clarifies.

Thanks

Assuming you have tried another adapter, then removing the drive from its enclosure would be your next step.

I haven't tried changing the adapter, but that's a great idea. Afterwards, will try using the kit and taking drive out of encl.

Thanks so much
