Thats what I did :) Just ran a few lines of code and went off..


No. You probably did this:

Click Start > Run > chkdsk /F X:

That's why the window close. First open the Command Line:

Click Start > Run> cmd

Good, it seems fine.

Ok, Seems fine at filesystem level, if you continue to have problems you should run chkdsk /r on the drive, it will do the same as /f but also will check the disk for bad sectors, the scan will take a long time.

Try the disk connected to a different computer to see if it gives you the same problem because it could be a problem with the disk, in some cases the problem is on the usb cable or the disk case and not with the disk in itself.

Tried it on my laptop with no issues. Think my PC could be rejecting it?

Now that you mention this I remember a case like that I had long time ago at my work, when I connect an external disk to the machine windows can't access the files correctly and when writing files to the disk windows starts reporting File System errors and gets very slow.
This was with a old machine that I end up replacing with another one a little less old.

I have seen similar cases if we connect the disk on the USB ports on the front panel but works fine when connected to a USB port in the back.
