Try connecting the hard drive to some other laptop and see if its getting recognized. Issue could be either with the hard drive itself of it could be with the usb port which you are using to connect the hard drive to your laptop.
Have a look in disk management if on win 7 or vista just type in "disk Management" in your search bar after clicking start button and see if it shows up there. If not try plugging into another computer and see what happens. If still no good you say only 6 weeks it should be guaranteed. If your data is important to you never trust just 1 source of backup maybe start copying to DVD's also. Good luck with it from Scott
Is your hard drive detected by the computer? Did you try changing the USB ports? You can
check if the drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu
> customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select
system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok.
Click on start > all programs > administrative tools >
computer management > double click on storage. click on disk
management(local) here you should see your drive. If you dont then the
drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just re-format it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
