mistake I did, what is impossible-I pluged power cable in wrong
way-inversely. Computer had started for 0,1s and turned down instantly(only
the power led once blinked). Now, I think that disk make a short-circuit,
becouse when it is connected, the computer don't start up.But when I
disconnect this drive, it starts correctly and other disks work.
Did anybody have the same problem? I need to recover my files...
I've found identic disk on Ebay (the same size, type, firmware). If I
replace elektronic from new one to burned one will it works? Is there any
chances that hard disk destroy new controller?
Thanks for help.

I've read of one person doing it after they had used one of
those inline fan adapters, they had swapped the 5V and 12V
leads so their fan ran from 5V, but hadn't swapped the other
end of the pass-through connector so while it was still
keyed right, 12V was on the 5V (intended) rail.
