once for mTTED, YOU CAN USE RECOVERMYFILES TO recover your files from the formatted disk, it should recover all files and then copy them to another drive, you cannot save/copy them to the same drive you are recovering from.

First check if your WD is running (spinning), no matter if the blue light is on. Can you hear it close with your ear, or feel vibrations on your hand when it starts.
If it runs, then check/replace the USB cable you are using with another.
Check the Power supply if it gives necessary power.
If you are familliar with disassembling/assembling, then open and remove the HDD from the box and try to connect the disc directly to your PC (using another HDD Data/Power cables).
If it runs, and you can acces it, then something is wrong with the Box.
If it doesn't, then the HDD is broken or damaged.
Please note that if your device is under warranty, DO NOT open the box ! Contact your seller for service/replacement instructions.

Yes it is possible but the Iomegas are difficult to open and you often snap the plastic retainers in the process. Given you can buy a !TB comlete for only about $20 more than buying the raw drive I suspect you would be better advised to simply replace the unit all together,

It depends on how you formatted the the drive.
If it was formatted FAT it will work on both Mac and PC.
If you formatted to HFS+ (the native mac format) then it will only work on a mac.

My Iomega (33654) 500GB USB isn't working. When I turn it on the blue light comes on for a few seconds. I can hear / feel it working but then the light goes off (it is still whirring inside). The computer isn't recognising it. I think it's still under guarantee but I can't find the paperwork. Do you have any ideas?
