I just updated the firmare on my external My Book Essential 3TB USB 3.0 drive, a couple of days ago, and now when I restart the computer the Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard combo is locked up. I can unplug the USB cable from my computer and the power adapter and all is well with the mouse and keyboard. I plug the My Book Essential drive back in (USB cable and power adapter ) and everything works fine, drive is recognized and all files on it are listed and accessible. The My Book Essential external hard drive is recognized by the computer as a 'USB Mass Storage Device - My Book (F:).
What can I do to correct this problem.
HP Pavilion HPE h8-1237c
Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
10 GB RAM
2 TB HDD
P.S. I have the MY Book Essential external hard drive connected to the computer via a USB port (supposedly USB 3.0 connection) in the 'upper I/O ports on top of the computer.
