Hi all ,Please is there anyone who can help me asap?
I have Buffalo external usb hard drive/drive station HD-CX1 0TU2-EU
Had it for about 15mnths no problems but my son went to get his university work last night & it wont load to comp?
Ive tried changing leads,
Ive tried 2 different comps but nothing.
When I plug it in the light flashes green,when I go to comp devices it now says cd [E] before i think it said HD-CX but when I click & say view files it doesnt do anything,just the green light flashing.
But it did untill yesterday also display the memory quantity & how much left now also nothing being displayed.
PLEASE can you help as i said my son uses it to "protect/back up" ALL his uni work & its now only on my buffalo,so im desperate for advice.
Thank you in advance for any advice,much appreciated

Are you able to detect the hard drive in disk management?

Thank you for your help.
I've plugged it in to check & no hard drive is showing in disk management.
Is there any hope of retreiving items on there?
Ironic that I bought this to back up my photos/paperwork & now basicly what I should have done was bought a back up EHD for my back up EHD :womansad:

You said no disk was found? Not even your internal disk? Are you sure you went to the right spot? Click start, right click on computer and choose manage. Go to disk management in the new window and see if you can see a hard drive around the same size as the drive in question.
