Take it to the apple store I guess. I have never heard of such a problem. Keep us up-to-date!

Behind you
disk is dead, but as the other posters have neglected to see its an external drive so your not covered by apple.
take it to where you bought, judging by the size its old enough that you might not get covered.

I think everyone who suggested that, missed that it was an external.
Not the only thing they missed. :p:eek::D
