Hi 1_digit_iq_person,

Please open Disk Management and check if the drive appears there. Does it have a file format and a drive letter? If the drive is not listed there, open Device Manager and search it there, under USB devices. Check the hard drive on another PC and with another USB cable. Have you tried going back to the cybercafé and checking the drive there? Update your anti virus software and do complete system check.

Hope this helps
