I am having a problem with a WD external hard drive (which is attached to my PC via usb). During the boot process, the drive light flashes for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes at which time my PC does nothing else. I had a look at the boot log and saw an error message of "Access Denied" to the H: virtual drive (and no other logs are created for the entire time of 2 1/2 minutes). How can I resolve this? I would really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
It seems that this can be a problem with the PC you are using; check to see if the problem follows when you use the external with a different computer (if possible). Are you still able to access your drive despite this issue?
