I have a My Book Essential (the one with the green led). I use it on a win XP pc and I never had to instally any drivers because XP should just recognise it. XP always did regocnise it, until this week. I don’t see it anymore in explorer so I cannot access the harddisc, but when I go to device manager I do see the WDC disc there under disc drives.
I can hear the harddisc spinning, the led is burning. When I plug it out and in I dont get any alerts or anything, I’m not being asked about drivers
This happened after the last windows update but that could be coincidence.
What can I do?
