That looks like a HW install problem, not all external HDs are plug and play. If you don't have an install disk, go to mfg. website and download drivers, then install and re-boot with drive on ! Given the error, always disconnect from "Safely Remove Hardware" first before pushing the off button.

Run a virus and spyware scan, include the external drive. Sounds like something changed the autorun setting on the drive to run that file on access.

Actually, this is a plug and play external HD. I've used it before. Its just that the USB was not working /recognizing anything plugged there, and the hardware person checked and found somecable loose and fixed it. This is a front USB, and not the rear one which is built in . I tried connecting the HD to the rear USB port, and the problem was the same.

If you right-click on the drive, and select Open or Explore, does that work? Did you do the virus scan on the system, including the external drive?
