Hi all! So after re-booting my computer a few months ago, I've run into the annoying problem of having my Samsung External Hard Drive randomly disappear from my computer. This is what usually happens each time I turn my Computer on: - Computer turns on, Hard Drive is active and present in My Computer folder - IF I DON"T open anything on the HD then it will stay present for as long as the Computer is on. However, if I DO open something, it will work no worries for anytime between 30mins-1hour, and then all of a sudden, whatever program I'm using closes and when I go to My Computer folder, the HD is no longer listed there. I have tried command prompt (diskpart;list disk; list volume) but it doesn't even show up as hidden or offline there. As for Device manager, it's not listed as a hidden drive either (as in once it has disconnected). I don't think it's a hardware issue, considering that I can open it for that small window of time once I turn my computer on, and it's light it on, no 'USB disconnected sound' occurs when it disappears, nothing like that. Any help is appreciated, and thanks in advance P.S. Though I like technology, it does not like me, so please dumb everything down as much as possible!
