i can not Connect to My Book

I have backed up files before. and i used my book to do it and it worked then. I have had it connected to my Dish Hopper to move moives over and have a little room. But when i just did it my hopper started a reformating. now when i hook it up to my computer it acts like it not connected. but i can safty remove it but i can't find it when i go to computer and looks at the drives.

Re: i can not Connect to My Book

Go to disk management and reformat the drive


chances are the dish  formatted and it will not be readable by pc's unless you reformat


formatting will erase all data
