  1. cry :cry:

    sorry couldnt resist that :)

    what exactly happens when you plug it in?

    and whats wrong with its name?
  2. when i plug it,it takes some minutes to appear with different name
  3. is it self powered or has a mains adaptor?

    when it appears what happens when you try to open it?

    and is the name made up of nonsense characters?

    that sometimes happens with faulty drives

    ie instead of being seagate its like $"&(%86ctgh

    and do you have important data on it?
