i've got this cutie external hard drive that i have been using for at least 1 year. but i think its more than 3 yrs old cos it was passed down to me. it crashed/failed a few days ago. when i plug it into the computer, the pc does not even sense the device being plugged in.
i think it may be broken as i have dropped it a few times.
The power light(green) shows up, but my pc just doesn't seem to recongnise it
It's not in Device Manager, not in My Computer, not in Add or Remove hardware.
PS. list of things I've tried:
-run --> cmd --> diskmgmt.msc (nothing there except C:\ and D:\(CD drive))
-tried unplugging and replugging it on 4 other PCs
