Maybe it died... it can happen. Have you tried it on another computer? do you have dual boot on your system? Does it fail as well in Windoze?
You could download Knoppix and try it in it... if it fails in any OS, the device is probably dead, sorry.

you could try booting w/ a live cd (knoppix for example) to see whether it is a problem w/ the configuration or hardware.
(edit)
sorry - previous message was posted while I was writing this...
