So I just bought this new hard drive and it was working for about two hours and then got this error from this program that the disk couldn't be written to. I looked in My Computer and the drive had disappeared. I also looked under Disk Management, and it's not there as well. In the BIOS, it was detected, but since the error I can't seem to detect it.
I took all the usual precautions of ESD, and I've install hard drives many times, so I'm not sure what's going on.
