I have an external drive of westernal digital comp, its about 160 gig and its around 3 years I have the drive. though the issue is that now when ever i connect the drive to my laptop its getting detected by the machine though the issue is that im unable to see the drive nothing is coming up.
checked in the hub settings also its showing up there also however unable to see the drive.
the only thing its giving me is the sonud of detection thats it. nothing apart from that. i have tried on oher computers also and having the same issue. is this a virus issue? and if yes than how would i scan it if its not showing up?

... try this click "start" run (type) diskmgmt.msc [press enter]

... do you see it there?

... if so right click it, option "explore" or change drive letter(?)
