    Hello All,

    I have a little problem maybe someone has a answer for me.

    I have a WD 250 GB HDD labeled as the D Drive.

    Well this morning I cannot get to it from windows at all a error message pops up

    saying MBR is corrupted or unreadable and that is it, the drive has worked flawlessly

    until the past week.

    Whenever I copied a file to it then tried to view or play it it wouldn't let me into the

    folder where i placed it saying a similiar message the folder has become corrupted

    and locked me out as to say.

    Today the system doesn't even recognize the drive at all.

    Any suggestions or ideas thanks in advance for all and anyhelp

    Are you able to bootup with windows? you are talking about the D drive. could you start in save mode? If yes run Ckdsk on all drives with the repair option. Could be runned from startcommand or within explorer R click on the drive and choose properties/extra/ check and repair. C must be checked with bootup because a running program cannot be checked.
    probably you found a corrupted or slightly damaged record or file.
