Windows 7: Iomega external drive. Cyclic Redundancy in PC. OK on laptop

Iomega external drive. Cyclic Redundancy in PC. OK on laptop

Hi there,

My Iomega 1TB external USB drive has just started giving our Cyclic Redundancy Check errors when trying to access files and messages about the drive needed to be formatted.

The strange thing is, the drive works perfect in my laptop. Both machines are Windows7 64-bit.
I've tried different USB ports in my PC with the same results.

I tried to re-format the drive from my laptop in NTFS format, however it didn't wipe anything from the drive and I still have the same issue's.

Any ideas ?
