Hmm... this is very unlike me to ask for help.
Where to begin...

Right, i keep MxO, various other games etc on an External Hard Drive, however its been recently acting up (hence lack of being ingame).
This HD has a light on front that shows power, data transfer etc. However this light has been... blinking, aka it flicks on and off every second with a clicking noise that sounds like the HD isn't starting up plus it isn't being read or anything
You think its dead?
[edit]
forgot to mention that i plugged it back in on the 21st at around 11pm, and it still hasn't started up by the time this is posted

If it is anything like my external drive it gets power from the USB cable.. but also has an additional point for external power.. I was having the same problem.

The fix for me was plugging in the external power as well. It seems the USB cable can only provide so much power, I found that my drive was so full the USB alone could not provide enough power to allow the drive to work properly.

In that case unless you already have I would go to their website (If they have one) and search FAQ in case someone has had similar issues.
