I have had this hard drive for about 4 months. It’s a 1.5 TB My Book Essentials 3.0 hard drive. I plugged it into my XP PC computer tonight, and unplugged it to put it into my Win 7 PC. As soon as I did that It said device not recognized then after that nothing showed up. Both of my computers will not read the hard drive now. I would like to also add that I recently Reinstalled Win 7.
I have tried everything Restarting the Computers. Unplugging, Plugging back in, Installing the Drivers, Nothing has worked. Right now it is plugged into my WIn 7 Computer, The light is on and its vibrating. I’m guessing the data cable stopped working but I am not sure. I would love any one else’s opinion/help this matter, as I use this drive as a backup and for storing files that I would be devastated if I lost Thank you.
