My Passport 500gb not powering up

Hi all. My Passport 500gb drive started playing up a few months ago. It would disconnect without warning.

Over the past months this has happened more frequently.

I connected the drive today and it will not power up at all.The LED light does not come on and no sound comes from the drive.

I use the drive on a mid2010 Macbook pro and connect it directly to the USB ports using the original cable. I’ve tried connecting to other computers and get the same results.

Due to not having another usb3 cable I have yet to try it with another cable. Could the cable be the problem?

Cheers in advance for any advice/help.

If the drive is still in warranty contact custorer service they’ll probably send you a new one.
