What do you mean by "damaged"? Is it physically damaged? Or did some software mess it up? I'm guessing you are using XP, does the computer say that it found the drive and it's not working or not notice it at all? I don't know if I can come up with the answer to your problem but maybe this info will help.. :thumbsup:

I acidently left mine in my jean pocket and it went through the wash AND STILL WORKED! Make sure that you have proper drivers for it. Right click on "My Computer" and go to properties. Click on "Hardware" and then select "Device Manager". See if windows is recognizing the device as being plugged in at all.
