|Hi guys, I borrowed an external drive from my dad. I was using it, and it was working just fine. I tried to copy something between the partitons on the drive, but it was too slow, so I cancelled it. Comp was slow, so I decided to restart. When the comp booted, it detected a new usb device (it had already done so before). It was installing the software, and it said device was ready to be used. But, it didn't detect the drive now. I tried to put the USB wire again, but it still didn't work. Now, it's not even working in other computers. When I put it in, it starts vibrating, then stops, and the light keeps on blinking from red to green.|
Another thing, when the drive was working, Partition Magic was showing some message about 'Partition Table is Bad'. Now, it's not
I think I realized what was wrong. USB port on the hard drive is burnt I think (it smells like that anyways). I used it for a long time (I have USB 1.1, so it took 3-4 hours), but if it burnt, it should have just gone out like that, not when I restarted?
One more thing, when I was restarting the computer, a couple of messages came out, that x file (cant remember the name), could not be copied to M: (on of the partions). Data has been lost.
Now, I am really desperate that this starts working, my dad would kill me otherwise. Please Help!
PS Drive is local one I think, it just written 'For IBM Travelstar' on the drive.
I really, really need help
