Error 1407 external drive

That's a Mac error stating that the file you are trying to delete is currently being accessed.

First, close all open programs and try to delete the file. If that doesn't work, eject the drive by clicking the eject button in a Finder window. Disconnect the drive. Reboot. Then reattach the drive and immediately delete the file.

Sounds like your external drive might be bad. Try connecting it to another system and see what happens. If you can't get to read data on another system, the drive is bad.

Make sure you have all programs and folders closed. Then try stopping usb mass storage, there should be more then one option so try removing the drive itself on the list. If that doesn't work. I myself would probably just restart the computer. Then try again.

It wont recognize files and i cant eject it

Just restart your computer, this should fix all problems, don't worrie it will shut everything down and won't break anything. Can't say for sure on the files though they should be fine, if your computer froze however this is a different story.

If your in a program that is writing to your hard drive it's a good idea not to plugg hardware in as this can overload you ram or interfear with other prosseses. Just think if you will want the thing before you start your project.

No communication

Is it displaying in device manager or it is not at all detecting. In that you may try with it some other system and same problem persist, there is possiblilty for damage. send it for warranty calim. Pen drive easily does not die. Check it in other system.

Any application or data is talking each other with computer and usb drive, then it gives warning try to close all application or any virus infection is there.

Possibly a hard drive issue/installation issue. I would try reinstalling windows xp on your current drive, if it still has the same problems, perhaps try a new hard drive.
