Question about SimpleTech 160GB USB 2.0 / FireWire External Open Box (STIU2F36160OBB1) Hard Drive
I used the harddrive with a pc, a view months later I bought a mac. so I wanted to back up my mac on the harddrive, but to do that I had first do format the harddrive for the macsystem, I never got that far, because now the harddrive doesen't power on and doesen't even show any lights. what can I do
Is it a 3.5" or 2.5" drive?
If its a 3.5" the first thing I'd check is the fuse in the plug for the power supply (if you're in the UK)?
If changing the fuse doesn't work it could be a problem with the power pack within the external HDD. Is it under warranty? You my be able to get it repaired or a new one (Don't forget, if you open up the fasia of the hard drive you will void the warranty). I assume you're not worried about data on the drive as you are happy to format it. If you are worried about data and it isn't under warranty/garantee I can tell you how to get the data off if you need me to?
Hope this helps.
