Doesn't show any files and folders when drive opened

I was using this WD passport 320GB external hard disk in UK.
But, after returning to India, on my desktop, it does show any files and folders, but, it allows to create new folders. when I plug the HDD next time again the newly created folder vanishes, but, I know its there as the system does not allow me to create the folder with same name.
Plz help.

Congrats, You got a nice virus. Its better you backup your drivers and data from ur root partition format it. reinstall your operating system and install avg 8.5 before browsing any of the other partition. I can surely tell u your task manager, registry editor or show hide folder won't be working. There is no permanent solution to this other than format. But beware don't browse other partition before installing avg 8.5. Your earlier installed antivir has given its way to virus its of no use. You won't be able to install antivirus or visit any malware removal virus site. welcome back.

Plug hard drive from pc to mac now i cant open files on my pc and the icons have a short cut icon on them?


It appears to be a problem with the WD hard disk that has data that the PC cannot read.
I suggest you format the WD hard disk.
The WD hard drive must be formatted on a PC in FAT32 for you to exchange data between the MAC and the PC.
This will allow the MAC to see a PC hard disk and write files to the WD that the PC can open.

There is an i/o error on some images and music files, on WD passport external hdd


The disk-drive inside the case is "dying".
Try to copy all the files that you can, before it's completely "dead".

Then, if the drive is still under warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

If not under warranty, WD has a "customer loyalty" program -- take the serial-number, and buy a new Passport from WD's web-site, citing the serial-number, to get a big discount on the purchase.

My external harddisk - WD 320G(my passport essential) can not recoginze on Window 7. Please help to slove.


First check physical connections of hard disk to your cpu. Check in 'device manager' disk drives tab. If its found check in "disk management" in that drive which file system its showing. If it shows raw partition mean your file system is corrupted. It requires remove that partition and create a new partition.

for open device manager : start > run > devmgmt.msc
for disk management : start > run > diskmgmt.msc

WD passport 320GB Can I use it as storage, not backup?


You can use it as storage if you would like. You can also delete files once they are put on the passport. When it is connected to the computer open my computer and it will be listed there. You can use it as storage by copying files into this way rather than syncing it. Syncing it could cause you to lose files.
