My 1tb hd is causing my windows XP PC not to boot. HD is around a year old - PC will boot but hang just before login screen.
If I unplug, the PC will then boot BUT HD will not be recognised by PC.
Have changed USB cable & plugged into mains - no joy.
Had same issue around a month ago … used a program called testdisk & HD was eventually recognised. Although very slow I started transferring files from drive but drive has again filed. testdisk did not resolve. HD is spinning & there is a light on HD
