Well, today it fell literally 60 cm, bounced quite hard, i thought ohhhh no plugged it it, everything crashed, i couldn't accesses it, i pulled out the power, put it back in and bam it worked, all is fine, thought i dodged the bullet .. UNTIL
About an hour and half after, i was afk, on my ps3 (pc behind me) and i heard a USB Ejection noise, as if someone pulled it out.. i thought hmmm, however my music stopped playing (Music synced to iTunes from my HDD), i looked at it unmounted itself from My Computer.
I looked and the light was blue as ever, blinking at a steady pace, not fast not slow, however always the same blinks.
I tried putting it in again and again, nothing. I plugged it into my TV (i watch films from it) tv after 10mins found it, i clicked to ENTER the HDD, and it came up "No videos found" - so i take it its corrupted?
I plugged it into my PC once again left it, after a while the light was solid.. like normal, i heard the noise to say its mounted, i looked in device manager it says its there.. bottom right came up "installing..." then "ready to use" all the ticks etc... however
No auto play, and nothing mounted. I can't access it... nothing...
So ive took it apart (well the casing) making sure everything is pushed in tight as there is no "Scratch" noises or "RRRRRRRRR" competitive noise, its just NORMAL!
tried a different USB port also just encase, tried it on another PC to be safe, same response.
