I have an external USB drive that was working just fine, and then the internal SATA drive on my PC crashed. After replacing the internal drive, upgrading the processor, and reinstalling Windows 7, I plugged the USB drive back in, and below is what I got. Update: for clarity, when I try to access the drive, I get an "access denied" error message.
I downloaded the Seagate tools and ran all the tests, which passed. I also found a forum post indicating that chkdisk can be used to force a USB drive eject, which I also tried. It ejected, but then after disconnecting and reconnecting, I got the same result.
What can I do?
