    I recently purchased an Acomdata executive 320gb portable hard drive and was working fine when i first got it. Now, a week later i am unable to access the hard drive on multiple computers. It is detected as being plugged in and windows goes through the found new hardware when its plugged in but i cannot access it. Could someone possibly help me with this?

    See if it is visible in Disk Management and what it says about it.

    How did you partition the drive? If you didn't, it should be done by you and not rely on the bad job done by manufacturers.

    Right-click Computer > Manage > Disk Management.
