This question already has an answer here:
So, I'm finding that when I break Redstone blocks while mining I am getting nothing in return. I've read this happens on PE but I'm using the PC version(Windows 7), which I downloaded yesterday. I am in survival mode. Has anyone experienced this? I've mined about 10 of these and have gotten nothing. From what I've read every one of those blocks should have given me something, it doesn't appear to be a rare drop. Thanks!
