Rightclick and select browse option . if the problem persists then try to scan your device with an anti virus program . if this does not work please mail it to me at- firstname.lastname@example.org.
i will be may able to help you better. i have seen this problem many times. i think that it is a work of a trojan. if the solutions given by me do not work please do not use the device until you get to know what exactly is the problem.if it is really a trojan using the device on your computer may get damaged . also try pessing both the enters continuously .it may work as i myself have gone through this problem , then after some days it will start working properly.

First I would advice to try to format it via disk management.
Second is try to format via CMD menu.
To open disk management go through:
Control panel>administrative tools> computer management> then disk management on the left> then right click and format fat file system or as per to your convenience...

The format of your external drive is most likely NTFS which is used by Vista and Windows 7. At best the latest OS X can only read NTFS format with care..
You best bet is to put the data on dvd - r or (i prefer for DVD archiving) + r since you'll be able to port that to anywhere. Alternatively, after saving the data to an interim PC, reformat to FAT. Note FAT can only address 32 GB. so you might need to divide it into multiple partitions.
I hope this helps or you found out differently.

I encountered the same problem before and was able to track it down to the power needs of the drive.
USB 2.0 standard ports are required to deliver 100mA by default and up to 500mA on request by a connected device. Some older (USB1.x) hubs can deliver a maximum of 50mA only which is not sufficient for the harddrive.
My StoreJet as a fix came with a special Y-connector cable (two USB connectors go into PC, one into the connector at the HD) to double the available power. I have also seen cables with an extra power connector built inside the plug that goes into the PC side. However, this is a crude fix in violation of USB standards and I cannot condone the use of such cables.
A separate power connector is present at the back panel of the drive, but it came without a power supply included. I got myself a standard 5V/500mA universal power supply (check connector jack size and polarity, outside sleeve is ground, inside is +5V DC).
Alternatively an external USB2.0 hub can be used but beware: if it does not come with an external power supply, its not USB2.0 compliant --- some cheap companies spare themselves of the extra costs for this required part.
Another thing: the mini USB connector in the back panel of the HD case is mechanically fragile and not soldered well to the controller PCB. It has a tendency to loose electrical connection.
I had to fix the soldering on two of these HDs already; doing so yourself is recommended only if you have some experience in using a fine electronics soldering iron --- otherwise have a repair shop fix it for you.
