I have a 500 GB Toshiba external hard drive. Since yesterday Windows 7 stopped detecting it, however I do see it listed on the "Safely remove hardware and eject media" icon on the taskbar. Then I tried the same external hard drive on my Ubuntu and it detected it just fine. Ubuntu and Windows 7 are on the same laptop. I have dual boot.
Can someone tell me why is it happening? Am I missing a driver in Windows 7?
- This drive has worked perfectly fine in the past.
- I did not format this drive ever.
- It just stopped working yesterday in windows.
