Possibly, especially if you plug it into another machine and experienced
the same problem.  When you plug the drive in, does the FreeBSD kernel
output anything?  If so, what all does it output?

Hi Jeremy:

No messages from the kernel, nothing when I plug it in. It is not making any 'clicking' sounds that you usually get when a drive dies. I just don't get it. Maybe a power spike crushed it, but if so why is the light on?
