I have a 3TB USB 2.0/3.0 WD Essential Workbook. Upon purchase, I managed to setup and use the device successfully. I copied 1TB of files with no issues. A month later, when I reconnected it to my PC, I get a pop-up box stating that the driver cannot be found. Also, I cannot see the drive in Windows explorer. Further more, in device manager under other devices, I can see a yellow ! against SYMWAVE SES USB DEVICE.
If I go to the disk management on the PC, I can see the drive, with “not initialized” next to it. I do not want to initialize the disk, as I do not want to lose what’s on there.
I know there are a few post out there regarding this issue (I have read them all), but none seem to fix my problem.
I am running 64 Bit Vista.
Any help would be great, I have spent 2 days looking at this and have got nowhere.
