Hi JoelAlara,

I recommend you to test the drive on another PC and with another USB cable. Is it visible in Disk Management and does it have a drive letter? I would try using the chkdsk D: /f command from the Command Prompt (D should be replaced with the external's drive letter).

Hope this helps
Thanks a lot.......
