    This morning i woke up to my screen saver, saying it couldnt pictures in "F:My Documents.....". I unpluged the EXT HDD and restarted the computer, came back up worked fine that was around noon today. Just now i went into it to look at one of my pdf's and i cant get it to recognise the drive. I unplugged it restarted it, plugged it in and restarted it, swaped USB cords out. Nothing. The computer recognises other USB keys but not the MyBook.

    Any ideas.

    HD is probably dying. How old is it?
