Windows 7 will not let me access Iomega external HDD
I currently have Windows Home Premium 64-bit and seems to be working quite well. However, when I tried to connect my Iomega eGo external HDD to *every single USB port I have on the computer* the computer would "see" the HDD but not register as a HDD that I can access.
It will not show up in My Computer at all. The HDD has music files on it from a different computer, so it's not empty.
When I go to look at the USB connections, it shows up as a USB Mass Storage device, but again, I cannot actually get INTO my HDD.
As a side note, when I look at computer management, my external HDD shows up as Disk1. Perhaps I need to allocate a letter to it? How can I do that without erasing the data stored on it already?
I've been reading the forums, and there doesn't seem to be a solution that works for me.
