Right the other day I finally got around to building myself a 80gb 2.5" external SATA hdd (sorry im quite proud of myself as its so tiny
After being able to put together my own one, I thought back to an old Maxtor 250gb 3.5" External HDD I have in the loft. The reason its up there is because; when I plug the power adapter in and then turn on the hard drive the small green led on the power adapter starts to flash and the HDD doesn't make a sound. I've tried different power adapters and still the same result, so now im wondering if I should get myself a different case and try the hdd in there.
I just wanted to know what people thought, or if it sounds like the hdd is officially dead. Looking forward to hearing from some of u!
