NOTE: I have looked through other threads for a solution but none thus far seems applicable, though some newer ones may be relevant.
I have a 1tb My Passport on Win7, no problems at all for 6mnths until last night I try top open an app & get msg ‘not a Win32 Application’. I disconnect the drive (correctly!), reconnection takes a while but access normally. Then Win wants to do a scan for ‘Corrupt Data’ that inexplicable closes while less than 1/4 through. This morning upon restart (on 2 Win7 PC’s) reads the drive as a CD drive & cannot access. Can’t apply any utilities (so far).
I’m prepared to lose the data if unavoidable, but would like to continue to use the drive. Any solutions?
