Does the computer recognize the 500GB Drive when you plug it into your usb port?

Click Start/My Computer and see if your 500GB drive is listed as a device, if not that's a problem.

Try using a different usb port. Also try using the 500GB drive on another computer.

If it's gone belly up, it's not going to work.

I have a 500gb roco toshiba external drive. the light is on but it won't read. i tried to change it's cable but still it won't work. how can i fix it?

try and listen to the drive when plugged in, if you hear a faint skipping noise. i suspect it is a fault internally on the reader.
if you have a reciept usually the manufacturer will exchange this. as a repair is very tricky!

My Transcend StoreJet 500GB cannot be opened

Several things could be happening here:
1. your electronic controller in the hard case has failed.
2. you didn't properly disconnect the external hard drive in Windows > with the
"Safely Remove Hard ware and eject Media" in the task bar.
3. if you have a power supply to the USB drive it may have a damaged power connector or not supply proper power to the device.

500Gb SimpleTech Ext Drive No Power

It sounds like you might have a problem with the power supply.
I have seen MANY external hard drives with failing power supplies. Take it to the store you purchased it from for a check up, it should still be under warrantee if its only 3 months old.
Good Luck!
