I have a 320GB portable hard drive that is connected to a USB through my computer. It's almost brand new, and has been working fine for 2 weeks. However, when I open up My Computer with it plugged in, My Computer just freezes until I unplug the hard drive, then it works fine. The hard drive shows up in both device manager and disk management. When I first got the drive I re-named it to "mypdrive" but now whenever I see it its just calling itself Local Disk. My computer can recognize it but I think is just having problems reading from it. I have already moved quite a few files onto this drive so I REALLY hope it doesn't need formatting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
