  1. Hi, i have an external hard drive and it was running great. I then turned off my computer, took it out the usb so i could move the case. Put it back in the slot. turned on comp and got the following message..

    "USB device not recognised.
    One of the usb devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it."

    I'm certain i didnt damage the hard drive and I've tried different usb sockets. all of them in fact. and they work with other things.

    I am using windows vista ultimate.

    Please help :(
