Is it just a new plug in USB drive?
If so try assigning it a different drive letter on another computer
Control panel -
Administrative tools -
Computer management -
Disk Management (in left hand panel on XP) -
Then change the drive letter. ( it will say that some programs may stop working - this is if there are programs or shortcuts on a computer that already point to data on the drive as they will still be looking for the old drive letter. Don't change the drive letter if the external drive is full of stuff.)
This process has worked for me
I have the same drive. It works great with windows XP but with
Windows vista has difficulty seeing this type of drive and keeping the
connection once it is established. Take it back if you have
windows vista and then search for which 1TB drives work well with
windows vista. It really has problems with windows vista
64bit. I was able to finally see the drive when I was using
photoshop file/browse/network... then I dragged the shortcut Icon to my
desktop and access the drive that way from that point on. Mine
stopped completely tonight... I think the power cord went bad or
try connecting the drive to a different system and see if that works.Incase it workd on another system than reinstall the USB drivers by going into the device manager.Also you could try different USB cords as there could be an issue with that as well.
what version of vista are you using, this is a very important piece of information, vista home flavors are not very network friendly,I recommend that you keep using XP until a few service packs are out for vista. If your using ultimate then something else would be wrong, possibly a setting on the vista box, Im not real sure how vista's authentication works but if they changed it enough then it might require a compatiblity mode or something in order to authenticate with 2000/xp, but then again i could be wrong and vista might authenticate exactly the same way as 2000/xp, try setting an xp box up as a server and see if the vista box can authenticate with it, if so then maybe 2000 is the problem, sorry i couldnt give an actual solution but im still new to vista myself and dont have any pc's that will run it, my good computers are all macs.
vista is only going to complicat things, try re mapping the drive, delete the shortcut and use my network places to find the drive then make a new shortcut to it if you can access it from there, i've had windows 2000 do the same thing especially with my laptop that I take to school, it a lot of times its due to changing ip's but occasionally windows just seems to forget where stuff is on the network and needs to be reminded. shortcuts can be made by draggin the folder to the desktop or desired location or right click the share you want mapped and select map network drive.
