so, my external's been working (just) for however long, but now when i plug it in it won't show up in explorer. it's in the devices list, is recognised by the computer fine, makes the little bhing noise when connected etc etc, but i cant access it. this is what the computer management shows. the external is disk 2
dont really know what that means, but there you go. it has no drive letter but wont let me assign it one.
im pretty sure this started happening when i reinstalled windows a few weeks back, updating from xp home to pro
any ideas? i have some important stuff on there!!
