You may have a power supply that is defective or is failing. Try another power supply, 12V, 2A, center pin positive.

Hello.
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!

It could be that it's internal power supply burnt out,
in which case the drive itself could still be fine.

Try opening up the external case, and removing the drive.
Once you do, plug it in to your computer directly using its SATA cables, and see if that works.

Hope I helped,
Tom

Make sure it is plugged in to a USB 2.0 compatible port on the computer.

What is the voltage of the Power Cord? Lost the power cord.


There should be a sticker or a stamp of the input and output voltage right next to the plug in. If it is the one coming from the wall it is a 120v and you just need to match the ends. If it is a smaller round one it is going to be 6 to 18 volts.

Maybe some bad sector in there. You should do a disk scan to check that.
