Samsung TV cant read my USB HDD anymore

I have just installed my brand new 8 series TV (UE40D8000), plugged a Seagate 500GB USB2.0 HDD in which it recognised and formatted.
Tested recording live tv, which it did fine and I could play back the recordings. Set a few shows to record, put the TV on standby and left it for a few days.
When I come back to look for the recorded shows, the Samsung TV is saying there is no device attached and obviously I cant access any shows.
I plugged the hard drive into my PC to see if ANYTHING was on it, and obviously Windows asked to format it, and Ubuntu said there was nothing on it...
So what the heck happened there!
