I had this problem too. Went out and bought a GOOD, Reliable 6' BELKIN replacement cable of the same type. $7.00 at WalMart.
The USB cables these ship with are skinny anemic ****.
Also.. NEVER save more than a total of 128 files and folders into the ROOT of a >120Gb HDD. It will 'save them' but you will lose access to them after reboot.
Always use Folders and Subfolders.
If they are Movies... Make a \Movies dir
If Music, ditto. If Jazz, put in \Music\Jazz.. get it?
If wallpapers, put in \Pictures\Wallpaper get it??
if Tool or Utility, put in \Tools or \Utilities
I am sure none of you can think of 128 different categories of unique stuff that you could not put into subfolders just as easily
