Ok so ever since I updated the firmware and WD SmartWare my external hard drive hasn’t been working. I also changed the settings on the drive to stop it loading up a virtual cd drive.
When plugging into my computer it loads up as local disk J but when clicking on it nothing happens and my computer practically comes to a stand still.
Whats even stranger is that I have a panasonic tv with a usb port, the hard drive used to work and load up pretty quick. Whilst it still works with the tv it takes about ten minutes to find the files.
As a last resort I tried opening WD Smartware before plugging the Hard drive in. Upon plugging the hard drive in it recognised I’d plugged one in but said something about no valid wd partition.
I have tired changing my plug to a wall socket but im guessing as it still works on the tv that its something else.
I have many photos, videos and music files on this hard drive so any ideas would be appreciated.
