HR20-700 External 2GB EVDS drive that was put in service in August 2010. I've read through several of the threads on here regarding the problem and it appears that most of them are pointing to a bad drive. Two questions: Is there anything else that the LED error could be pointing to? If I decide to delete everything and format the drive, will that end up fixing the issue or am I looking at a drive that is toast? I would hate to think that the useful life of a drive is 16 months in one of these things.
