Hi, Everybody. New here.
I am a novice who bought a Lacie external drive about 8 months ago. I entirely backed up everything from my computer on it over a period of a few months months - photos, business files, personal letters, etc., in anticipation of an upgrade to Windows XP from win 98 SE. I wiped everything off of my regular computer. A month or so ago, my external drive light will come on but I get no action - no sound - no play - nothing.
Is the motor dead? What can I do? All I get is the eerie orange power light. I would hate to loose all of my stuff.
