I have a strange issue with Windows 7 Professional + my external HDD MyBOOK 2Tb USB3.0.
Connect the HDD to my PC --> Everything is fine and It works correctly
After saved data into HDD I perform right mouse on “Safetely remove hardware” icon and select “Eject my Book 1140” --> Command executed correctly and the external HDD is succesfully stopped
After the above operation, I unplug the USB3.0 cable and try to reconnect the HDD to the PC without unpluggin the power supply cable, but the HDD LED starts to blink, then it stop but the HDD is not showed anymore into “my Computer” and I can’t access to it.
Under “Disk Management” utils the HDD doesn’t exist
Under “Device Manager” appear again under “Disk Drive” + “Universal Bus controller” like USB mass storage + “WD Drive Management Devices” like WD SES Device
I also changed the drive letter to avoid drive conflict --> Issue still present
I also tried to format the HDD or reinstall the USB3.0 PC driver + WD SES Device driver --> Problem still present
I also used different USB port (also USB2.0) --> No changes
The only way to see the HDD again into “My computer” is unplug the USB 3.0 + power cable and reconnect both. After that I can use again the MyBook external HDD.
Can you help me to solve this problem in order that I’m able to see again the HDD just when the USB cable is connected again to the PC?
