im trying to fix my friends external harddrive (medion drive-n-go 500GB, uses 2x usb to power it, can run on one though, i can provide further information if needed, not the exact harddrive though), which he (as far as i know) accidently unplugged it while it was transferring something and know it messes up. when trying to boot up while its plugged in (havent tried on linux, windows only) the boot process freezes.
and when simply pluggin it in nothing happens, no pop up messages saying youve plugged it in, and you cant see it in the drive section/thingy.
so my question is: do you think the ehdd is completely dead or do you know a way to make it magically show up?
