Question about Acomdata (HD080U2FE-72) 80 GB Hard Drive
I bought a Western Digital MyBook (Essential Edition) about a month or so ago. Set up was easy and I moved all my music to it, and also backed up my photos. I used it quite a few times and then was out of town and did not use it for about two weeks. Today I tried to connect it again, and while it will show that a "external drive detected" and my device manager shows WD as a disk drive which is functioning properly and enabled - I am unable to access it. It does not show up on My computer or when I try the Explore function. I have it connected now and the light is glowing - but I cannot access it!! Please help.
Thanks so much. This isnt the exact problem, but close. I have an acomdata external hard drive, and backed up my old computer. This weekended i plugged it into my new computer, it made a noise (figured it was loading my info), and opened up drive f, and all it showed was whatever is current on my new computer. Now there is a file that says Windows One Backup, and I was told that I could probably still get back my data, butI don't know how, and the person who told me couldnt tell me because he worked for acomdata. Microsoft is no help. Please I beg you, I need some help, I have 9 years of pictures and work on there. Please anyone.
You might have to log off the computer and log on again with another user. the user that you installed the data under is sometimes the only way to go back and retrieve it. try this first.
