Hi Chobloke,

As you mentioned the light on the Hard Drive is off, this could be an issue with the cable. Please try a different USB Cable in a different USB Port. Also, remove any Flea power from the computer before connecting the Hard Drive. To remove Flea Power:

1. Disconnect the power source from the computer.
2. Remove any External peripherals from the machine.
3. Press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then release. This will release any Flea Power stored in the machine.
4. Re-connect the power source and try to power on the computer.
5. Check if any difference is observed.

Do reply with results.
