I believe what started this ws when I turned off my laptop, unplugged it and moved it to use in another room. I plugged the harddrives back in, in exactly the same order (last time I did this I lost all my music cause ITunes couldn't find it, was very confusing) My son said there was a conflict with the DRive letters and did some small feature in Vista which renamed them properly. I'm scared to death to try to resync my Ipod after this. Currently only the small 500 mg external is pluggged in so I can still listen to my music, BUT if you go into iTunes it has all these dots that say things are missing, yet they aren't. That is the result of the drive switcharoo but it was better than losing everything and starting from scratch, which I had to do once before. (I had another hard drive completely crash and I lost everything. I had to redownload EVERY song back into this new external and then retransfer it back to ITunes. it was a harrowing long ordeal that I don't want to repeat.
Can anyone helpme get the big Seagate to work again with my laptop? Hubby said calling Seagate and Dell has been hopeless. My last resort is to find someone in town that works on computers and turn it over and I can't really afford that right now. HELP? Thanks everyone, Cat
