The power supply reads proper voltage (voltmeter), however no lights come on for this 750gb Maxtor HD One Touch IV.
I know that I can get a warranty one, however I had literally finished, one day before, organizing every single music, video, footage, file, and harddrive backup into something clear and coherent.
And one of my older drives has now been reformatted, so that's the ONLY copy of at least one harddrive.
So if I void the warranty and open it up, I simply want to know the following items:
1) Will this be one harddrive with an IDE cable?
2) Will I need something special on my computer for "Large Harddrive Support" -
3) Will any run-of-the-mill harddrive enclosure work? Or should I only plug it into a pc?
I figure the power cord got tripped over and the thing was pulled out the wall/plugged back in and fried the circuit board. How easy would a fuse have been, eh? And I think I'm ready to open it up and plug it into a computer and get my data back.
