I have a MyBook Essential 1T connected to a laptop running Vista. This morning, as I was unplugging another USB device, the USB cable for the drive came loose and the laptop made a sound like the drive was disconnected. I replugged and the drive won’t mount.
I tried rebooting unsuccesfully. I tried plugging it into another computer to no avail. While I was doing that I realized the drive was still on when unplugged from my computer. How should I proceed in order to power down the drive so that it can be plugged safely into my computer and mount properly?
