So for the moment the problem seems to be solved.  I have two of these
passports on the main box.  So I unplugged the working one and plugged in
the "dead" one and the "dead" one works - showed up in My Computer.  Plugged
in the other one and not it works as well.  Reboot the comp and everyone's
playing nicely now.  So that's that.  For now.

Dear List(s):


I thought  my external hard drive (WD Passport .5GB) had failed. But when I
plugged it into my laptop (USB) it worked.  Then I plugged it into my
secondary box, and it worked!


So it hasn't failed but something in my main box (W10) has.  Everything else
I plug into the USB port works.  It seems to have just stopped recognizing
this particular device.


Any ideas?
