Does anyone know if using 'Safely Remove Hardware' can itself corrupt/destroy an external hard drive?
I just received my Samsung Story 1.5Tb HD today and copied a couple of files onto it to check it's compatible with my PS3.
Fyi, I've got 2 other exernal drives (one of which is about 2 years old) that I've never used 'Safely Remove Hardware' on and have never had problems.
After reading the posts in this forum though, I thought it'd be best to remove the new hard drive 'safely'..
It is now essentially a brick; it won't even switch on, plus I replaced the fuse (just in case).
Any help/ suggestions are greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
