Okay, I think I know what's going on. Apparently that model had serious overheating issues causing the PCB (board inside the enclosure) to overheat and stop workinghttp://www.amazon.com/HP-HD7500S-Personal-Media-External/product-reviews/B000UD6E48/ref=cm_cr_pr_hist_1?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending
I was reading the above page of reviews and it seems like it was common with those drives :(
However my solution will still work. I found another enclosure on Newegg on the link below:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817388017
Basically inside your Personal Media drive is an actual desktop hard drive.
Essentially it's inside an enclosure at the moment.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvZZmWhSfl8
The above video shows you how to remove the drive but if you don't feel comfortable doing it you could get the enclosure off Newegg and have a local computer shop do it for you. I can't imagine them charging more than $20 to do the swap over. (it's about 5 minute process)
That's about all I'd charge and i've been a computer tech for over 15 years now.
Once the hard drive is in the new enclosure it will just plugin and work as it should have.
