HD is a MyBook 500GB (WD5000AAKS) WD Caviar SE16 from 2007.
It has not been used for about 5 years.
Friend of mine dropped it. Want to see if there is anything on HD of value.
Using a new iMac now.
When I plug it the MyBook into an outlet, it runs for 5 SECONDS and quits.
Is there some kind of recovery tool I can buy to achieve that.
Or do I just trash it.
