My apologies NOOR I replied to the wrong topicPosted Image had a long day and not enough coffee, the intended topic is @ http://www.geekstogo...-drive-failure/

Please check the Device Manager for any yellow ! or red Xs, if there are none showing please follow the steps given @ http://answers.micro...5e-b475c35ca586

If this does not resolve the issue the next step would be to uninstall the device and all the associated software and then do a fresh install, please note that if you do need to do a fresh install you must not connect the USB device until you get an on screen message advising you to do so.

I hope that one of the above resolves the issue and once again my apologies for replying incorrectly.

Thank you for your understanding, it is appreciated :thumbsup:

First off sorry that neither suggestion worked :(

Before we do any uninstalling of the device or it`s software can you please do a system restore to a date when the device was working, a date before August 22nd in this case, not sure what operating system it is that you are using so here are a couple of links to help W7 http://windows.micro.../system-restore and XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306084

Let us know how this goes please.
