You need to reinstall the software as it sounds like you have a missing or corrupt driver.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

You may be able to remove the hard drive manually and try another USB adapter to access it on your computer.

Rule of thumb is to never save your files to only 1 source. Its not a question of if a hard drive is going to fail but WHEN.
