Packard Bell Store & Save

  prycey 15:44 11 Apr 07

My Packard Bell external hard drive seems to have stopped working. When I turn it on, the green light styas on for a few seconds but then it turns to red and flashes green quickly. Windows XP seems to have recognised the drive as I get that sound when you plug in a USB device but I can't access any of the data. Does it sound like it's totally broken? I've got a couple of weeks warranty on it left, but I would really like to get all my data back, or be able to fix it from home without having to send it off if possible. Thanks.

I've also tried it on another computer and it does the same there.

I notice it's got little screws on the side - is it worth opening it up to have a little look?

I would not recommend opening it as what do you do then ? If still under warranty, get it back to them asap. Opening it will probably void the warranty anyway !
