HI, Im new here and I have a or some questions. A few months ago I accidentally melted the power source for my cavalry external hd. My puppy had chewed it (the cord) and I covered it with a towel and it (the plastic cartridge plugin) melted a bit. So I recently replaced the cord and got a new usb cord. I got everything plugged in and the computer recognized it. I decided to click the icon in the system try that showed the hard drive and it disappeared. Since then I have tried to add it with adding new hardware. Its not even showing up in the system. Ive restarted my computer many times with it plugged and unplugged in. Im wondering if I burned the drive up somehow. I just dont know why it showed up at first and now doesnt. Any ideas are most welcome.
Thank you!
also if I rearrange the usb cords, plug them in in different ports and restart the computer, it says that it has found my new hardware but then it disappears.
