HELP

I am sitting here with a notebook and a desktop, plus I have a cavalry 500GB USB hard drive.

At first I could not get the USB hard drive to show up, so I tried a different cable, and it started working. With the new cable I was able to see the USB hard drive and play a song on it.

Now the USB hard drive is telling me that it is not accessible, and the disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEAS PLEASE?

thanks

I don't have a solution, but note I have found the following about USB drives (hard or CD/DVD), through experience.

  • USB drives can be very unstable
  • Firewire (aka IEEE 1394) external drives are rock solid
This does not help you with your Notebook, but may explain your problem.
