    Hi,

    I plugged an external DVD reader/writer into my networked machine and
    all of a sudden, I could not access a hard disk on my network server.

    I tried removing the network disk and putting it in another machine
    and accessing it directly but now it just asks me to reformat every
    time I click it.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Erm... did you take the DVD writer off before moving the disk out of the
    server to see if all returns to normal, if not do so and refit the disk in
    your server.

    please provide a little more info

    eg operating system, type of hard disk drive.. SCSI .IDE etc.

    regards
