I have a 1 TB WD External Hard. when I connect it to my laptop which has the Vista it works good, but when I connect to my PC which system is XP it is not recognized and I recieve the message: Drive is not accecible, file or dir corrupted and unreadable.
the disk management in XP report the drive as healthy but doesn’t report the file system (which is NTFS ofcourse).
the history of my actions are as follows:
1- a problem occured and I received the msg: drive is not formatted. using the software active partition recovery (doing a super scan) I solved this problem and could open the disk and use contents.
2-since some copying actions failed after that, I performed a chkdsk and a surface scan and a very few bad sectors detected. but after that the new problem occured which I explained at the begining.
I performed a disk check in Vista but I couldn’t solve the problem.
can any one help me plz?
