when i connect the power to the HD, a blue light flashes briefly, the drive seems to be starting to power but then nothing. Anyone can help?

I believe these drives had a universal sliding adapter for the power plug. Is this correctly installed and making good contact?

Is the power connection to the drive fully home and not loose?

It is worth noting that some problems have been reported with this model of drive so if it is under warranty you may wish to return it.
