I use Windows XP. I've had this external hard drive less then a year. It has all my files, music, and games installed on it. My games and music on my desktop are no longer pulling from the EHD. They say the drive can't be found.
I've recently had some virus issues that are now resolved. But, in the meantime, my External Hard Drive stopped working. Every time I turned it on a window would pop up asking what I would like to do with EHD. Usually I say "view Files". Once I chose "Take No Action". since then my EHD has been invisible to my computer.
I have Acomdata 320G USB
*I have looked on the 'Computer Management' to add a new drive and it doesn't see anything plugged in. Maybe I'm not doing something right.
*I've tried downloading the drive software from the website and it says Windows already has a driver installed and won't let me continue the download. I do not have the original CD because of a recent move.
*I've tried all USB ports. None have made a difference
*I've tried turning off the EHD, unplugging, restarting the computer, plugging it back in, then turn it on. Has not worked.
*I've tried seeing if all devices are working properly, and all are stated healthy.
