Hmm. What did you do? Remove the drive and use the sata connection for recovery?

The issue was running it off a keyboard USB port, it worked fine up until I dropped it and sheared a head off. Ended up with a nice mini-USB to Sata w/ power board.

If it still doesn't work when plugged into USB port on a computer (not a hub) you can take it apart and try the SATA connection as a last resort.

Thanks for all the kind suggestions guys, but this drive is hopeless at least that I'm not spending any money to retrieve anything! Anyway I found an older my book with about half the flac files that I lost on it, so any stuff that I really miss so much I'll just buy and rip again.
