I've had this My Book for a few years and it is 80-90% full of various types of files and was working wonderfully until this morning.
I rebooted the computer for an unrelated reason and now the external hard drive will not show up in My Computer. All it does is flash the bottom light and a padlock light directly above that lowest light. On and off, on and off for ages then sometimes it will stay om for a second and then resume flashing on and off, on and off.
I have never set a password. I have tried disconnecting the power and the USB cable numerous times. I have tried Googling for hours and have come up with nothing.
Please help me gain access to my files. Thanks.
