I have an external hard drive (a 250 GB internal inside an external casing) connected to PC via USB port. It is a storage library.
After installing an old pre-XP USB driver for an old digital camera -- this is the only thing I did out of the ordinary -- I find I cannot access my external drive files without bumping into an error message: Oxc0000094.
Would like to be able to access material on this drive as needed. Did a CheckDisk on reboot.....and it gets to 98% of the data verification step (4 of 5), then sticks for hours. Manually shut down and reboot, tried it again - same result : stuck at 98%.
I uninstalled the USB driver (an old app) and searched the camera mfg'r's web site for updates - there were none.
Haven't yet tried a system restore....would like to avoid it if possible....that never seemed to work for me. Wonder what other ways to make that drive and it's contents accessible again without a shut-down by explorer.exe for Oxc0000094 error.
Thanks in Advance - you always have the answers!!
