When I plugged it back in I got a message saying it was installing device drivers, as if this were the first time I had ever plugged it in. It then said it failed to install drivers and the hard drive wasn't showing up in My Computer. I tried restarting and it has not fixed it. In fact it's not being detected whatsoever since. It won't even say it's installing device drivers again when I plug it into a different USB port now.
Plugging it into another computer entirely does not work either.
The light still goes on when I plug the USB into the computer though, so I know it knows it's being connected to one.
I don't see how it could have just died as it doesn't make any sense for it to have just got progressively worse with every action I took. Surely something else must be the problem?
