I have a perfectly fine WD 250 gig hdd, until the other day, i used my dock to plug it in but the pc (windows 8) just saw the drive (in my computer) as D: with no indication of drive space left, i tried to access it but the system just hangs until i unplug it.
I have tried plugging directly through sata but the pc wont even boot, even though its only a back up drive.
I tried to check disk within windows 8 (right click properties) but that window never pops up, it just hangs.
Tried chkdsk from command prompt before windows loads but the cmd windows fails to appear, until i unplug it from USB then its pops up, but then plugging the drive back in and I Chkdsk D: again hoping that i have catched it, it just scans my music drive which is normally G.
It shows in devices, my computer and bios, disk management just hangs when the drive is plugged in until yes you guessed it i unplug it from usb...
