    External drive suddenly not working

    Hi, I have an external usb/firewire hard drive that i use to transfer data from computer to computer. I have had this drive for about a year now and hasnt giving me any problems. Up until about 2 days ago when i started up the drive a ballon pops up saying "USB Device Not recognized." I've also tried the usb connection on other computers and it tells me the same thing. Ive tried the firewire connection and it works fine, but the things is that i dont have a firewire connection at home. If anyone has any suggestions or a solution to this problem i would greatly appreciated.

    Check your cable. It could be that the connector is worn and not getting a good enough connection. THat'd be my first suspicion, especially if you are using this quite often.
