I have a drive that appears to be, um, half dead.
Background info is that I bought the drive just as the 110D came out a couple of years ago (?). It has been used only occasionally along the way and has been in 2 different systems, also I had it hooked up as a USB drive. Then it died to the point that the activity lamp doesnt light and disks being inserted dont spin-up.
So; the drive will power on and the drawer will open.
All I have done towards figuring this out was to inspet inside for debris that may be stuck in there or if there was any obvious indication that the boards had lifted tracks or burns. I managed to flash the firmware after the physical checks only to find the drive in the same condition afterwards.
Is it a gonner?? thanks
