I have a WD “My Book Essential”. It has always worked fine. A couple of days ago, I suddenly got a message saying;
“USB Device not recognized. One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it”
I am running Windows 7 on a hP desktop.
Does this mean my Book is no longer working, and I have lost all of my data on it? Thanks very much for any help.
