    Is there a message that comes with the yellow triangle?

    Was there drivers that come with your external HDD (If so re-install them)

    Has the drive taken any knocks recently?

    And could you please post the name make an model of your external HDD

    Yes but thats like saying "I have this trouble with my car engine how do I fix it "yet wont say what kind of car or engine, in order for us to help we need to know the NAME of the external drive, then we can look up info on it.

    We can help you if you can give us a bit more info thats all.

    OK...... Calm down.

    The yellow triangle just means there was a connection problem between your external an your computer.

    It only shows to let you know there is a problem.

    But i agree with ZippyDSM more info on what your external an current set up would have helped a bit more.

    Just remember for your next post. Im glad its working now.

    *noogies pizat* the more info you give on the problem and the devices you are using the quicker we can dig up info on them and the pirticail problem you have.
