You can probably reconnect just by unplugging and replugging the drive (either the USB or the power cable)

failing that, rebooting the computer often works

Try restoring your system to a date previous to when the ereader stopped working. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the software,usually, software like this asks you before deleting any other information.

Hi naths99,

Not to worry, you haven't lost the drive, what you have done thou is you formatted over all the software that allowed the drive to mirror your data. But as I said all is not lost. Here's a link that will reinstall all the software that was originally there. HERE! Pick your My Book and away you go!

Good Luck
