I bought one of those small 20 gig Soyo drives several months ago on a Woot off and I use it all the time. I’ve got a TON of digital pictures of my kids on it and I just put several gigs of video on it about a week ago. Then last night it was sitting on the nightstand next to my bed and my three year old was kind enough to clean it for me (sigh), so he stuck it in a glass of water, where it sat for a few minutes until I rescued it. I’m absolutely SICK about it! I shook all the water out that I could and I let it sit overnight. I tried to plug it in this morning and the blue lights go on to tell me that I have power, and I get the little noise that windows makes to tell me that something has connected, but then is just sits for a minute and I get the noise telling me that it has disconected. The blue lights stay on, so I know that there is still power, but it just won’t connect to my computer anymore.
My question is, am I totally screwed?? Is there any chance that I will ever get it to work again and is there anything I can do? I’ve got all sorts of important files on it that I really don’t want to lose. I’m not that tech savvy when it comes to hardware like this, so I’m pretty lost. I would love your advice!
