I have a WD 500gb My Book external hard drive that was working properly up until about 3 weeks ago. I have tested it on 2 different computers where it is usually recognized but files are not accesible. I get an i/o error message. These two computers are both running on Windows XP and I have used the HD on both machines before. I tried plugging the HD into a friends lapton running Windows Vista and everything was accesible just as it was in the past. I am convinced the data is alright, but how do I access it on the two computer running XP? Dumb it down if possible, I am bit of a noob.
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?
