Re: EXTERNAL DRIVE NOT WORKING

All depends have you opened the case to see if the wires were ok? If it powers up and spins you maybe able to recover some stuff. There are a host of "home" remedies, for unreadable drives from freezing to boiling, once it starts working be prepared to get everything off quickly.
