try to access the disk from command prompt.
to do that folow these instructions:
-start menu, run
-in run, wright: cmd
-in cmd, wright: x: (where x is the letter of the drive you want to access)
---if no error came up, wright: dir , to see all the folders and files in the drive....
---if some errors accured then, wright scandisk x: or chkdsk, u might need to restart so the scandisk will work.
Assuming that the jumpers at your hard drive is in the
right position. Run Scandisk to correct defect of the hard drive. If there's no change after the running Scandisk, then, the portion after the 137.4 either used space or a defective one.
There could errors in the drive. You should either run a scandisk on it or format it altogether. Either should get it back up and running is it is a genuine device. 1. To check for errors/scandisk right click on the icon of the memory stick, select properties. Under the properties menu look for Error-checking and select check now. The check disk menu pops up. See that Automatically fix file system error box is checked. Then click on start. 2. If you decide to format the memory stick just right click on its icon and select format. But see that you move you vital files from it first else you will loose them.
You only need to use disk management !!
Right click 'My Computer'.
In the left pane, under 'Storage', Choose: 'Disk Management'.
When device is connected it will appear as: 'Disk xx - Removable'.
It should be not allocated (Black Line), so you only need to created a new partition and format it.
Good Luck !! :-)
Sounds like the enclosure is failing, the drive has bad sector/blocks or there may have been a breif dip in power which has effected the opration, locking up the drive and the computer while it was attached.
Hope this helps.
