External HDD not showing
I bought an external HDD last year and the case broke, I just replaced it yesterday and booted it up fine, reformatted the drive, unplugged it but today it's not really being detected.
I plug the external drive in, takes about 10 secs for the comp to detect a usb device, then i open 'My Computer' but the drive icon is not showing... So, I went into hardware device manager and under disk drives it's listed as USB Device. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers from Device Manager but it made no difference, I tried another usb port and got the same result.. it's being detected as a usb device but not exactly a HDD so I cannot access it.
What gives here? I was able to access it before but now I cannot...
