Today for some reason I no longer appear to have my external drive As far as I can tell it is running ie lights etc come on with startup of the pc but not showing in My Computor etc. Assume it must have died or is there some other possibility all leads seem ok
Try Control Panel,System & Security,Administrative tools,Computer management,Then click 'disk management'and scroll down to find your external drive and right click on it and select change drive letter and paths, then click add and your external drive should be there for you.
Well yesterday after posting and rechecking the leads it worked thought I'd give it overnight brfore calling Yipee sure enough jusy now it failed again I unplugged and rebooted nothing then up popped the windows box telling me this disc contains files of X and what would I like to open them with . Strange as 5 mins ago Adobe audition could not find files on that disc anyroad it is now working again and no it dont show up in device manager when it aint working . reluctant to buy another external in case it might be the PC at fault
