I have been using a WD external hard drive for over a year now with no problems. Today I have suddenly ran into one. After restarting my computer the drive no longer shows up in Windows Explorer. Device manager shows the drive as connected and working properly. The problem is not just with windows explorer. For example, if I try to play a song on iTunes (all of my music is stored on that drive), iTunes can no longer find the song file.
I have restarted my computer and switched usb ports but neither step helped. I am running XP SP2. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
