Question about Western Digital (WD3200JS) 320 GB Hard Drive
I have a My Book Essential Edition external hard drive (Western Digital, model WD5000C032). My computer is a HP Compaq dx2200 Microtower with Windows XP and Pentium 4 processor. The hard drive always showed up as an E drive. Now, it is not showing up at all. No drivers are needed for install. I went to the Western Digital website, but did not find any updates that needed to be installed. I've restarted the computer and tried plugging the drive into every USB port that I have, but none of this has worked. Fortunately, I had everything backed up on my computer's hard drive as well. Any ideas?
Basicaly the problem is I've been watchinga movie from my external hard drive on my friends laptop and we decided to change the move to another one, and after that the whole pc just lagged so my mate just restarted it and after that my hard drive is not recognized anymore. I went back to my pc, plugged it in and it started installing the whole drive like a new HD was jsut plugged in. After installing it was not seen on My computer and the device manager said its working fine although it is not. Ive tryed re-installing the driver but nutting happened. Dont really know what to do so any help and tips would be appreciated. Thanks a lot it advance.
I have a WD3200 usb Hard drive. I am looking to partition it. The problem i encountered is when I go to the disk management, the drive shows up as disk one but below it , it says no media. its like the computer knows that there is an external storage device attatched but cannot access it. Also if I try to get into the disk from my computer, it says "insert disk"
