I bought a 1TB external hdd from western digital (mybook I think) a few years ago. hadn't used it in a while, last month started putting photos and videos on it for storage. plugged it in a few days ago and left it in the wall.
about an hour ago, it was plugged into my ps3, and I took it out to put some more dvds on it. plugged into my computer and nothing.
normally a blue light would come on, now it might flash for a second, the disk spins for a few more seconds, then it powers down.
previously, I lost the power cord, so I bought a new one on amazon (not sure if original cord or 3rd party). the light on the power cord is a solid green, so I think it's getting power.
at this point I'm assuming it's dead if the hdd starts to spin then shuts back down. anything I can do? thanks
