I have a Seagate external 1tb hd connected to a WD Media player which has developed a fault which stops me accessing some files on the HD. I update the files on the HD by connecting via cable with my PC to add further video files.
Recently Iwhen I connect the HD to the PC, Windows identified that there are errors on the drive and prompts me to run a scan. This has worked OK , but now stopped working. The scan starts but fails to complete with message that "Windows cannot repair the errors" .
I have tried running "chkdsk" from command prompt. Same result. and also by right click the HD in question from "My PC" , same result.
I think I may have caused the fault by failing to "Safely disconnect hardware" from the Media player.
I can access all the files, and write to the HD when connected to the PC.
Is there some way I can force the chkdsk command to work, as I feel this will solve my problems.
Thanks in advance.
