Question about Western Digital Caviar WD400AB 40 GB Hard Drive
I purchased a WD5000H1-U00 to back up files on and to store photos. It does not have and on/off switch. Since I only use it intermittently, I simply unplugged the power when I did not want it and plug power in to power up and use the drive. Yesterday, when I plugged it into a wall outlet "NOTHING HAPPENS"..no blue light, no sound, no spin.. nothing!!! Help, what should I do so I can use my drive? Serial Number:WCASUG491194
Sounds like an internal switch or relay has failed. Not worth it to attempt repair. Were it me, I would open the case and recover the actual hard drive inside, it's probably still fine. For $25 you can buy a new external case to mount the drive in. This way you can save the data.
