    So I turn it on, and the light just blinks, then after a ridiculous amount of time has passed, it will pop-up. But while the light is blinking, I cannot access "My Computer". The second I turn the drive off, everything goes back to normal.

    Also, when I try to boot with it plugged in, well....it wont boot. But once again, when I turn it off while its trying to boot, all is fine.

    Is this a software issue possibly?
