I have a Western Digital Caviar Green 1.5TB SATA hard disk (WD15EADS) that seems to have died, but I'm not sure if it's a goner or not. I've been using the drive in an old Iomega external ESATA enclosure, which I powered down today while I was installing Windows 7. When I tried to power it up again, nothing happened. I took the drive out and put it in a USB hard drive, and the power LED of the dock shuts off when the drive is in it, but turns back on when I remove it.
What do you think the problem could be?
Do I have any hope of getting my data off of this drive? Any ideas?
