Question about Computers & Internet
Weird that all three go on the same day...
The obvious question is are you using safe remove before unplugging the drives. If not, it's possible that you're corrupting the file system.
A virus could cause this - make sure your software is up to date, and run a special scan to make sure.
If the drives fail when copying the same file to them, the file could be the culprit. After you get a drive working, try copying some other files to see if it happens again.
Lastly, there could be problems with the USB port itself. Did they all die in the same port? Can you try with another port? If you use the drives in another computer do they work ok?
Put on your Sherlock Holmes hat, and try to narrow down the possibilities. I'll be Dr Watson....
Let me know how it goes - if you can give me the results of some of these ideas, I help you get to the bottom.
