About a week ago I purchase a SimpleTech 320 GB External Hard Drive. It worked fine on my old laptop (a Toshiba Satellite). I bought a new laptop yesterday a Sony Vaio and now when I plug in my HD, it will show up on my computer but when I try to click it to open the files it says "Location is Not Available. H:/ is not accessible. Access is denied." The weird thing is if I go to search and search for the title of a song that's saved on my HD, it will find it, let me click it and play it. But when I try to open the drive itself to look at or use any of the content itself or move a file (so that I can transfer it to my MP3 player etc.) it won't let me. My laptop operates on Vista if that makes any difference.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, thanks for the response.
I followed your instructions but when I right click the drive without a letter the only option listed is "help" and following the help instructs me to do what I just did but states that there should be an option that says "initialize disk" but there isn't.
The hd came with a disk but all that is on the disk is a guide to using the HD, no software or install information or anything.
