    Have been using portable hard drives without any problem until yesterday. Hard drive G no longer shows up in `my computer`. It does show in Disk Management and I can open it up from there but it`s a hassle. How do I get it to show again in `my computer`?

    You should be able to give it a letter in disk manager? and then retain it...

    I know sometimes that can be a problem with USB sticks not being seen in My computer, but after assigning them a letter in disk management they usually retain it when plugged in.
