I am hoping to find a cure here, before I have to overpay for data retrieval. I have a 500g WD My Book, which has worked fine for over 1.5 years. Recently, my CPU froze (Pentium 4 3ghz processor, Windows XP Service Pack 3) and had to hold power button to shut it down. Since then, I am unable to get not just this CPU, but any of my other CPUs to even recognize the hard drive. I have tried connecting it via eSATA, USB (on different ports), and Firewire. The hard drive itself has the LED light on the front go from solid (booting up) to a quick flash (almost every 2 seconds or so). I tried disabling/enabling the ports, etc. Nada!
I have literally a ton of files on this thing (valuable lesson in having separate DVD backup). I would appreciate any help that you all could provide, I had major CPU issues a while back and this place was great.
Thanks so much,
