A few days ago my… cat… tripped over the cord of my 1.5TB WD elements drive and it hasn’t been working correctly since. Today when I plugged it in, I was able to see all the folders when the drive mounted; but I wasn’t able to copy anything. When I returned later today, the drive wouldn’t mount or anything. The light on the back of the unit is flashing a white light.
Based on this, is it possible to tell whether it’s the chipset or the hard drive? What do the light sequences mean?
EDIT: I’d also like to note that when I plugged the device into a mac, nothing was listed under USB in the system profiler… all my other drives; regardless of whether a HD is attached, will still show the chipset listed there.
