I have a Fujitsu Handy Drive that I was using to store iTunes music/ movies. After iTunes crashed while it was writing to the drive, the drive hasn't worked correctly.

It immediately slows down my entire system when plugged in, and then is sporadically recognized in "My Computer." As soon as I try to click on it, it again slows down everything and may or may not proceed to next step.

Check Disk utility crashes when I try to run it on the drive, and Fujitsu Diagnostic program shows the drive as an option (without a serial number) but doesn't allow me to select it to run a scan.

Is there any hope?

Thanks,

Jon

Sorry, it sounds like the drive is shoot, is check disk won't even read the disk then it is probably corrupted. If you don't care about what is on the drive (you can re-download all of you iTunes data) then you can reformat it. Even if you do reformat it you can download software that reads previous formations of the drive and try to recover your data that way, but there is a chance that it could be unreadable.
