Salinger posting has reminded me that with these drives it is recommended that you unplug them correctly. To do this look in your systray (next to the clock, bottom right of screen) for a green arrowed symbol, double click this and follow the wizard to unplug the device, (for Windows 2000 upwards)
"Thanks for your advice.. But it still not working at the moment. I am fairly sure I unplugged it correctly, and I know the data is there, because I took it to the maximum allowed. Any other ideas perhaps?"
You say you "I know the data is there", have you checked in Explorer to see if the drive appears, and that there is data on the drive?
Must be disconnected correctly Bottom tool bar Plug and cord icon click on it whrn it says you can 'Safely Remove Hardware' is the time to go. Check also that the device can be accessed and contents shown on another computer. It is possible that it is a dud!
Another e-mail from noddy: "I checked with explorer and drive appears, and system manager tells me drive is working properly. A variety of files *.doc *txt *.exe etc is shows drive with files of 240 mb with balance space on drive, but nowhere does it show files Any clues friend ?"
Did you save the files from the computer you are working on at the moment?
If not then plug it back in to the original computer to see if there is any files or problems with the device.
