My 1 TB drive has been working fine for almost a year. Today I plugged it into an NEC (powered) 4 port USB 3.0 hub and the hub's blue power light goes out and my Windows 7 PC says "Power Surge on hub port. A USB device has exceeded the limits of it's hub port"
The WD drive does not light up and is not functional. If i plug the WD drive directly into my USB 3 PCI card the blue light on the card goes out and I get no error message and the WD light doesn't come on and it's unusable.
If I plug the WD drive into any USB 2 port nothing happens.
WD drive worked fine earlier this morning and has not been dropped or physically damaged in any way.
