So I have an older iomaga (ices-003 class external hdd that I keep around to back up my ps3. So today when I went to plug it into my ps3 to back it up(for like the millionth time) the drive would not show up, I then plugged it into my computer, still not showing. I have checked all my usb ports and disk management, still nothing. I know the cord itself is not dead because it was used for something else literally a hour ago. The light on the side of the drive is just on(normal when not writing/reading, blinks when working)
Is their anything else I can do to check/do to know whether it is working, Can I take it out of the case and directly connect it into my PC without problems?
It really is not an issue data wise because I keep that data on all my pc's, its just that I want to know that it is done, and that I'm not getting ride of a perfectly good peace of hardware.
Thanks for the help, if you need any other info I might have left out please ask.
