Having trouble seeing External Hard Drive through USB
Posted on 2006-10-28
I have Windows XP professional, latest computer. I have an external hard drive connected through a USB that work fine until 2 weeks ago. Now I cannot read files from it anymore.
It is like it is trying to access something. I have Norton Ghost on my computer and I think after several times of trying to put a backup on this drive from Norton Ghost I think this is what made it stop working.
The external hard drive is a CMS USB 2.0 I know the drive still works and I hear the audio whenever I plug it in and unplug it like it is trying to connect, however it does not cycle through with the autoplay and then open windows expolorer so I can look at the files. And now it does not even register as a drive under "MyComputer"
What could it or my computer be looking for? What can I change to read the drive to access my files on the drive?
