Hi All, Been having a problem with an external hard drive of mine (USB 2.0 connected). Lately the PC was not booting properly and when I turned off the power supply to he external hard dive it seemed to reboot no problems. It was sometimes imaging and showing on the PC and other times it was not. Sometimes I could access the contents and then other times I could not. I checked the event viewer and the 'warning' under event 50 and 51 kept sowing on the system log for the source 'disk'. I now cannot access the hard drive. Can anyone tell me what has happened and I suppose more importantly is this a message to 'kiss' the drive goodbye? or can it be 'fixed'. I won't hold my breath on it being just a simple problem. Thanks.
