    Same here. Pocket Media Drive Pd0000 (120gb). I used it to store my pics & docs. Took it out, put it back in and... not formatted. I really need some help here: a bit of my life was stored on that drive. When I bought the PC I downgraded from Vista to XP almost immediately and all worked fine. Now, out of the blue, 100GB of my life are being take away from me... :(

You can try a 3rd party data recovery software to recover your data off the media drive.I have succeed to recover data from external hard drive with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your portable drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus corrupted partitions etc.Download it and scan your media drive for free to preview whether your data can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryprofessional.htm

Cannot play WMV file


This is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. The most important feature of a WMV file is that its format allows large video files to be compressed, retaining the rich quality of the video. It is a file format developed to store video content in a compressed format, so that movies and other video programs can be viewed on a personal computer. These videos can be watched from the hard drive of your computer, or other media players. To play a WMV file, a set of codecs are required. A codec is a program that can easily read a file, creating video and audio formats from the provided data. WMV files may be played on Microsoft Windows Media Player and other media players as well. The latest version of WMV is WMV10.

My problem is with the HP Personal Media Drive


> When I unplug the media guide, then it doesn't show up on my computer.

That makes sense -- when _not_ physically connected, then it will not show up within "My Computer".

Try a different USB-port on your computer.

Or, connect it to another computer, to see if Windows will detect it, and will assign a drive-letter. If not, then try a third computer -- it could be "dead", if 3 computers cannot detect it.

Insert card into card reader. Find which drive letter the card is in. Right click on that drive. You will see an option that says format. A warning will tell you anything on the drive will be errased. Once sure you have the right drive click OK.
