    I have a Archos External USB hard drive that was working fine on two of my computers until yesterday. Now my computers won't recognize that it is connected. It sounds like the drive is powering up ok, but it isn't showing up under My Computer. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be and how it can be fixed? Both computers use Windows XP.

    By definition, it sounds like a hardware problem with the drive or its interface electronics, since it affects 2 different PCs. Power supply OK?
