My External hard drive is a Maxtor (now seagate) with a capacity of 1TB. Has 300GB of my information i.e my life!!! Since a couple of days I have been trying to get it to work. I connect the HD to the laptop, it lights up, makes the normal noises, but doesnt autoplay. I go into the my computer and click on the HD but it comes back with - F:/ Application not found - !!!! Is it my pc at fault?? I use Vista on my Hp laptop! Or is that the software for the HD at fault! The icon does show: 600GB left of 900GB for the HD so i am guessing that the information is still intact!!! Please help. . . !! I cant stress how valuable the info is on this HD.
