    I recently got an external drive on a USB 2.0 connection, and on Friday it
    just disappeared from the computer. I have tried turning it on, off,
    removing the cables, putting them back, Device Manager, Computer Management,
    etc. and nothing works. sometimes I get Error Code 10 on the USB connection
    which says "Mass Storage Device" and other times the tools say that it is
    working properly, but it will not show up as a Drive anywhere on the Windows
    Explorer, etc. I cannot use it, and I cannot even get any of the Repair
    programs to find it. The Drive is on, and it sounds like the plates are
    spinning.

    Please HELP!
