This is the danger of using an external drive. If your drive has fallen and hit something (the ground, desk etc) then its likely that the needles which were in use are now crashed/broken/stuck inside, thus not enabling the drive to read/write. You could try a recovery boot CD and try load up the drive that way, I doubt it will work. m 0 l ashok8008 March 3, 2012 6:59:49 AM Thank you i will try m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
