Hello,

I have a 1TB Toshiba hard drive which can no more be identified on my laptop and any other computer all of a sudden.
When i connect the USB cable, the blue light on the drive stays on for sometime then goes back off and still the drive cant be identified. Someone please help me i hope the drive isn't dead.

Since it's not recognized by any computer, you should take your drive for repair.

Sorry
