I have a problem with an older Aspire (Acer) D10 (or D/10, the print is extremely small) HDD. The data on it is not important. It seems to be working properly, and when it's plugged into my USB port, I can see it in 'My Computer' as 'Removeable Disk F', but I cannot access it. When I try, I am told "Please insert a disk into Removeable Disk F:" I just want to reformat it, but I am told that Windows cannot access it. It does not appear in Device Manager. Device Manager shows my Hitachi internal drive and a SATA2USB bridge, (which I believe is just a driver in my laptop, correct? )
I am using an Acer emachines D725 with Windows XP.
Can anyone help?
