Up until yesterday, my external HDD was working perfectly. However, now it is not being recognised by any computer I attach it to. Its light is on. Yet it does not show up in computer on Vista. And it does not show up in device manager either -- instead, I have a code 10 USB Mass Storage error.
I have trid to update drivers, yet windows tells me that drivers are up to date. I tried connecting to a computer which I haven't connected to before. The installing device driver software resulted in me receiving a USB SATA Bridge Device Driver Software was not successfully installed" message.
The device is a Buffalo Drivestation 1TB External Drive TurboUSB. It is about 3 years old. Is it completely dead?
