When I connect it to my PC, the hard disk seems to work, even I see the blinking light at first, after 5 secs or so, it stops blinking with a couple of sounds, and the light thereafter is constant. Its the same with my TV, TV displays an error message 'USB device not detected', it has been happening for the past 3 to 4 months, earlier it used get detected every once in a while, but now its not getting detected at all.
While the external hard disk is connected, the device manager shows a yellow icon in other devices and fails to show up in Disk management.
What seems to be the problem, should I format it?
It has 1TB storage space, with almost 600 gb of data in it.
