My 250GB WD external drive isn't working. May have gotten jolted, or unplugged accidentally, not sure which. Anyway, when I plug it in, it makes a short metallic "whirr," then another whirr slightly lower in pitch. Then it repeats this. The computer sees a "WDC mass storage" unit, but it doesn't show up in My Computer and I can't access any files.
What should I do?
Anyone know some good data-recovery companies in Georgia? Should I send it off somewhere?
