I have a Seagate 1tb external hard drive.
It was working fine and then one day it started the 'blinking green light'. Then it stopped doing that and now does nothing! While the blinking light was going the hard drive didnt seem to be running. I could hear no spinning etc.
No sure what i am meant to do now? Obv can't run chkdsk as nothing will show and nowthere is no life at all!
It is in warranty so should i take it back to where i bought it or send it into Seagate? Also i need the date so if i do remove the harddrive and connect to my PC as a slave, will i void the warranty? ARGHHHH help!

Thanks for your reply. I can't hear it spinning at all, no action apart from the blinking green light. All i can think is that my flat mate inserted the incorrect AC adapter into it, the one for the printer. I believe the printer AC adapter is 0.95A and the Seagate takes 0.65A. I am not 100% sure of this but it would explain why all motion has cut out.
Like you say it leaves me in a difficult predicament as i have to weigh up my personal data over the value of a new hard drive (warranty)...
