    Hey guys,

    I have had a problem turning on the Seagate HDD that I have, I have been using it in Windows with Mac Drive where it is usually picked up (although says it is bad but OS X didn't so IDK if it was or Mac Drive is pissing around) but it works now today the drive won't turn on, no light no nothing :mad:

    Is there a way to find out if it is actually dead as if I have lost my work (all my college work, iTunes, pictures etc etc) I will go ****ing mental as I'd have lost $500 and £100 odd iTunes (most was backed up on a previous drive which also died (WD though)') and un-replacable documents/pictures.

    Please say there is a way to fix it :eek: :(

    It could be a power issue. I had a Lacie external that gave me fits until I found I had a bad power supply. Try changing cables and swapping power supplies. In a worst case scenario you could try changing out the enclosure.
