    Last night I was transferring files to my external hard drive I use for storage, when half way through copying a group of files an error popped up in a bubble in the bottom right of my screen saying that windows could not copy the file and data would be lost, I didn't write down exactly what it said, I wish I had. after this error happened my external drive is no longer detected in windows, I have tried using it in the external case, I've tried taking it out and hooking it up to the motherboard. I checked disk management and it's not even detected there. I've tried plugging it into a laptop with vista on it and I cannot figure out how to fix this problem, any help would be greatly appreciated

    I am using win xp pro sp3, asus a8n-e motherboard, amd 64 x2 3800+, radeon x1550, 2gb patriot ram pc3200, 1gb corsair xms pc3200

    The hard drive I'm having trouble with is a WD Caviar GP. WD10EACS
