Re: External Hard Drive Won't Work
Any possibility that a malfunctioning USB port could trash the drive electronics (probably the USB-SATA bridge rather than the drive controller), which would lead to the drive not working on other systems? I've seen this happen when using a dual voltage supply where the 5V and 12V lines got swapped. USB is 5V only, of course.
