Please help! I bought a WD 250gb external HDD last 9 months ago, and it has been working fine. I do stuff on my mac at home, take it to work and do it on my PC there. No problems. Suddenly this week nothing happens when I plug in the HDD. I have tried it on about 8 different computers (PC and Mac) but nothing. I tried my boss's cable and nothing. I have tried using SpinRite and DiskWarrior, but because the HDD is not detected these seem to be of no use. The IT guy at work suggested a shorter cable or one with more power, so I have ordered one of each from ebay... What else can I do?? I need the stuff from my HDD. Sometimes when I plug it into a PC I get the message that 'this USB device can not be recognised' - so I know that it knows it is there (does that make sense!?) Please Please Please can anyone help me!?
