Hi, i have a Toshiba MK8032GAX external hard disk which used to work perfectly until the other day i plugged it into my brother's computer after which it has not been running at all. on plugging it in at first there is no bell-ring that indicates that a device has been connected then after some time it does ring but for a very long duration only the green light is active then suddenly for about a minute the red light is on without pause but the new drive icon does not appear in my computer. and it sez the usb device is not recognized as well. then when i open up the device manager it puts up a question mark in front of the usb mass storage device that is my hdd. i am using windows xp prof. sp2 intel p4 with 768 MB ram.
