My Buffalo external hard drive is only a couple of months old, and no longer is being read by my computer.  It doesn't show up in My Computer, device manager or anywhere else.  When it turns on, it gives a series of 3 higher-pitched beeps, followed by 3 lower beeps, then 3 higher, then 2 lower. It didn't do that before, that I can recall. I've tried using it with another desktop computer - also doesn't work. Can you help?

And I tried it on a different desktop (Brand new)computer - also not readable, and emits same beeps. Come on, Buffalo! Can't you help? This thing's only a couple of months old!

If it is beeping then it is a HDD issue and the unit will need to be replaced
