External drive stopped functioning

I believe I have a my book and was working fine until tonight. I noticed it wasnt on ( i usually keep it plugged in). Unplugged it from the power and then plugged it back in, and the light went on a few seconds and I could feel it turn on but then it went off. Anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Mine did the same thing… worked fine til today. I just called but its not under warranty anymore… Ive tried everything and my computer just can see my drive

I just tried using a different usb cable and it didnt help… can these drives just stop functioning?
