External 1TB drive problem
I have 2 of these. Iomega eGo 1TB USB desktop 3.5" SATA drives. Came in an enclosure. Used them for a good while, maybe 3 years. Taken out of service about 5 months ago, put back in original packaging, styrofoam inserts and all, and put on a shelf. Now I need one, but it won't show up. Status light blinks on it so I figured the power supply was toast. Took it out and slaved it into my PC. No joy there either. Dead dogs or is there another solution? Both are doing the exact same thing which I find bizarre. Doesn't matter if I connect to an XP machine or a Win7 machine, nothing. And I need some data off these things.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
