My My Book World (Blue Rings) warms up, makes soft spinning noises and an occasional gentle, short ‘clunk’ (there is no clicking). All appears to be working as it always has done as I’ve always heard these sounds. But there is no blue light. The blue light never comes on and I cannot connect to the drive; it no longer appears on My Computer.
I’ve tried disconnecting the Ethernet cable, reconnecting and waiting a couple of minutes to no avail.
I cannot switch off the drive by pressing the unlit button; nothing happens. Pressing the button seems to have no effect when booting up the device. Whenever I attach the power cable, the soft whirling of the disk and the occasional gentle ‘clunk’ can be heard.
Please help me in returning my My Book World Edition to its normal operating mode.
