Does this mean that my external hdd is dying (please say no!). I've never seen it before, and this just started maybe an hour ago. I installed some crap for my wife's new MP3 player (HERE) wich installed WMP 11. I was showing her how to drag and drop music files from the external hdd into the mp3 player, when after copying maybe 5 of 40 songs, it gave that error and then gave it a bunch of times and only copied a few of the songs over. Hmmm....so I tried to do a disc check...it wouldn't do it. I tried to defrag it (which I do at least monthly) and it wouldn't do it. I tried opening files from it, only some of which I can open. I can't open squat in wmp 11, but can open some music files with Creative audio player. for most of the files, it won't play them at all or it'll start to play them then stop after a split second.
I'm going to tinker with it some, but in a panic I've made this post to see what input others might have! I'm not sure if it's caused by wmp 11 or if it's starting to fail.....
EDIT: I should also mention that this drive is shared via a wireless network with my sons computer upstairs. He said that he wasn't using the J: drive, nor had he used it all day. I don't know if I believe him. Perhaps I should sell him on Ebay just to be on the safe side....Kidding. I believe him.
