I have a WD Passport that was working fine until I just rebooted my computer. I also have another external drive that quit working. The second drive is using the HFS files system and I have HFS drivers for Windows 7.

I can plug the NTFS formatted drive into another laptop and it works with no problem. I can also plug USB Keys and a little 250 MB USB drive I have into the same USB port on the laptop where the drive isn't working and they all work.

Disk management shows the partition as healthy, but it doesn't show the volume label anymore. If I try to assign it a drive letter, it tells me the system cannot find the file specified.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Does it show up in the device manager? If so, uninstall and delete drivers.
