I have a 1tb My Passport that up until last night had worked fine. I plug it in and now instead of showing up with the assigned name it is listed as “Local Disk”. The light is flashing and I can feel the drive spinning. When I attempt to open the disk after a long process I get the message:
“Not Accessible. The Parameter is incorrect” along with a box telling me I need to format the drive to use it. I’ve tried to open it on a PC running windows 8 and one Windows 7 and get the same message. I have not yet tried to open it on a Mac.
Any ideas what might have happened? Possible fixes?
I’m really just looking to get the data off the drive at this point.
