    I have a simpletech napster musicvault model 96300-40001-005 and one day it will show up in my Explorer and other days it will not. I have had this problem on and off in the past and one day it will magically appear again but I don't know what is causing this problem. Right now I cannot find it in explorer and I really need some data off of it. I have unplugged, rebooted, even tried hooking it up to another computer and it did not locate it. Both computers acknowledged a device and that is working properly but I just can't find it anywhere. Any ideas?
