Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
 
 
Windows 7 won't read my external HD. Format only...

I have a 1.5tb external USB drive. I was installing files to the drive when it stopped working. this is a regular occurance with the drive, and the solution is usually to trun it off and back on again... which I tried and got this error...





so I rebooted in the hope that it would sort itself out, but no joy. I have tried it on my dads pc and got the same error (we're both running the same build of Windows 7 Ultimate.


I have looked in the device manager and the drive is present. so I tried to re-install drivers, nothing happened. then I tried to re-enable it, nothing happened...





this drive contains around 1tb of files. music, pictures, games, videos... none of which I can get again and the last thing I want to do is format.


please tell me there is a solution to this...
