Hello!
I have a Toshiba DTP220 hard drive that has stopped working.
There are no lights or sounds when you plug it in.
I have tried 4 cables, 3 computers/ laptops, and the Eases software doesn’t work as the laptop doesn’t detect the drive.
I have gone to device manager and turned off auto power down etc.

Is there anything else I can try? I own screwdrivers, if someone could tell me what to try :)

Fzabkar is going to have you opent he external drive up and take some reading on the HDD Controller board. If you aren't comfortable doing that then let us know. Otherwise...
Check with friends & Relatives to see if you can borrow one.
Under $7 at harborfreight. Walmart had theirs for $8 something last time I looked (automotive section).
