Problems with External disk,

I can connect to the tv and see the movies that i have, but when try to connect to the pc, it doesn't work, the icon only appears but can not access it and the windows explorer stop working.
I check the event viewer, and I get the following message:

Source: NTFs   Event ID: 57  Level: Warning
The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.

Can this drive be accessed on another machine? Have you tried a different port on your machine?

Try a chkdsk on the drive:

1. Click Start, click Run, and then type cmd
2. At the command prompt, type chkdsk /R /X <Drive:>
3. Chkdsk runs and automatically repairs the volume.
4. Repeat step 2 for each volume on the disk.

In step 2, replace <Drive:> with the drive letter given to the hard drive.

Try changing the command to:

chkdsk E: /R

It should run on that drive without the need to dismount, but the /X can be necessary sometimes.

I think the problem might be the drive letter associated with the drive... Often external drives have 2 letters 1 for software and 1 for the storage of the device. If the drive letter is already assigned that it is suppose to work with then you will have this kind of problem.

Also you can try to reinstall the drivers for the external device. If the device recently worked on the computer you can try a system restore to when the device was working last to see if it is a configuration or update problem of some kind.

How did you get the movies onto the disk? Did you record them from the TV or in another way? TV's usually can't do anything with NTFS file-systems, they rather need FAT32, exFAT, or a Linux File-System like EXT4, and if it is a Linux file-system Windows won't be able to do anything with it.

The chkdsk says the drive has problems. Do you have another PC where you could connect this drive?

I think it is time for a new external HDD... Best time of year to buy one though. Do you have the data backed up? There are some ghost recover programs and if you are considering that as an option I can go find the name of the last one I used a year ago that worked fine on a drive with courupted boot segment.

Here is a cheap external HDD:

I'm thinking of that, but why I can watch the movies when connected to a tv

AaronSystems Administrator & DSTCommented:
I am thinking whatever interface it uses with the TV works but whatever interface needed to mount the drive is the problem and therefore not connecting to the computer.

Open the USB case if the drive is out of warranty then take the drive out and connect it internally to SATA interface on PC. Try to format the partition on it.

Boot the PC using a Linux LiveCD like knoppix, and try mounting the disk using that.

Well, for such a solution you do not need to come to a technical board and ask technical questions, in any shop you would get the same advice. You have problems with a PC - then buy new one and all problems are resolved. :)
