Sounds like your drive is shot. I'd recommend letting Endless Electronics repair it. If you're a DYIer check eBay for one from the same model and have fun. It's not that hard.

OK Mr. Technicality when I said everyone's I was referring to the people on the forums posting after the latest update so if you read correctly technically the way I said it was and is correct . Again I am referring to people posting this happening after the latest update

Believe what you wish. Your thread title said "Help" did you really want some or did you just want to try to place blame?

What do you want to hear? There is no magic wand fix that costs nothing. Magic wands are expensive.

What I would like to hear is someone else that is willing to actually help not someone that only says replace it or repair it why should I have to when I was not the cause I did not make the update I believe that was the developers. I was not trying to be rude but in reading the numerous post about this same issue after the latest update in every post I've seen people say that it was not the update it was just a coincidence it happened at the same time and that they should just buy a new one. I'm not saying it is you saying that but its upsetting when we have a legitimate problem and instead of trying to help we get told to buy a new one.

You could go back years and see after every update there are people blaming it for problems. It's a coincidence. I know you don't want to hear that but the updates are a convienent scapegoat. Nothing lasts forever. Everything breaks. It would have still broken if you had never updated.
