    Hi everyone, my external hard drive fails to power up and I don't know how come. I'm fussy when it comes to powering down and removing hardware from systray and I can't work out why this Buffalo 1TB failed on me.
    Thanks in anticipation for any help :(

    If it's not powering up, then the power pack the enclosure is faulty.

    Hi, I really appreciate the quick reply, I went to see the store where I got it from and he reckons its the power plug AND the USB lead. Will keep you posted on what happens, I am contacting Buffalo to see what help they can be, which won't be much in today's world. Seems to me that you "Can't complain about the service...there isn't any!!!"
    Thanks again
    pedro
