Gerard, I hate to say this, but usually when that happens it means the hard drive has died.

External Hard Drive Not Being Recognized Hi all My external hard drive is not being recognized on my computer at all. I will try it on another machine tomorrow. However, I have a lot of data on it, including some I really need ASAP, so if anyone could tell me how to fix this problem without formatting the disk, I'd really appreciate it. I should say that the drive seems fine. It runs normally when plugged in on my usb. At least the hard drive is spinning normally. Nor have I done anything to the drive, which is quite new. Please help on this one if you can!
