    I just can't seem to access my external hard drive... At one point I was able
    to. it saw it as just another folder in my computer but now I can't get it
    back for the life of me. I updated my ports, I tried patches but all I ever
    got was "this update does not apply to your system".

    It shows up in the device manager and says its working properly and when I
    unplug it from my computer I hear the little "disconnect sound" same for when
    I reconnect it except its the "reconnect sound".

    Using vista home premium 64bit
    4gigs of ram

    thanks
    -John

    How does it show up in Disk Management? You may need to make changes there,
    like assigning a drive letter, etc.
