I have recently bought 1TB WD element external hdd drive, after coping data from the XP system connected the WD drive on WIN7 and copied data from there also, and when I connected WD back to XP system it shows the drive is connected but I’m unable to open it, it says the files are corrupted and does not do anything.
And when it is connected to Win7 it says some files need to be repaired and it repair something WD is back to working condition again in WIN7.
So the thing is I’m not able to use Ext drive under XP system, I have uninstall n install the usb drivers, Drive appear in Disk Management chnaged the drive letter but with no good.
WD support says take the back up and format the drive under XP system. Which I can’t do coz of 400GB’s of data on it.
Does anyone had the same issue and knows how to fix it, really appreciate the solutions thanks in advance.
