My hd does not work anymore. When I plug it, the light is on for about 20 seconds
in the meantime it emits repeatedly a strange noise: a uniform noise for one second and then a shorter, higher tone noise. Then the light start to flash, and there is no sound anymore.
I use linux. When I plug the cable nothing happens. Even dmesg does not report the usb event.
On windows I tried to upgrade the firmware, but it is impossible because the software don’t find any hd.
I changed the cable too. I used the one I use with my nokia cell, but nothing changed.
Could you help me? What can I do? Is There any tricky solution that can save my data?
Should I send it to a Data Recovery company? Does the warranty process recover my data?
Please help me!
