I started to get a Windows-like message pop-up saying my 500gb MyBook drive needs to be formattted. I use Symantec Norton Virus. What is the cause? EdD.

Thnaks for the come-back.....
Norton has been on this Dell since purchased. It is updated constantly using :LiveUpdate". It runs automatically every day on some file folders and all when I start it Monthly.
If a virus is doing it, Norton does not find it.
Any further ideas?
