So basically my external hard drive was acting up and I was going to disable and re-enable it to try and solve the problems.
I went to Computer Management -> Disk Management and disabled Disk 1 (which was the HDD). To disable it, I right clicked the disk and went to the properties. I went to the Driver Tab (which lists: Driver Details, Update Driver, Rollback Driver, Disable, and Uninstall). I clicked the disable option.
It disappeared and whenever I plug it in, it doesn't show up anymore.
The HDD is the Screenplay HD from Iomega and the drivers are located on the HDD itself. The HDD still works because I plugged it into my MAC. From there, I just erased everything and set it up to use FAT32 so it would be compatible with both systems.
The HDD shows up under the USB Controllers except as a "USB Mass Storage Drive" now and the menu to do anything with it doesn't pop up.
Any idea how to re-enable it? It seems that I need to find some unallocated partition in Disk Management and add a new disk. However, there is no more unallocated partition. It also seems I need to download third party programs to create an unallocated partition.
Help is very much appreciated and I will be here to answer questions.
