Default Re: External HDD problem

My external DVD drive does that sometimes. To fix it i just open up device manager, find my drive. Then un-install it.

Then unplug it and plug it back in, and it re-installs itself again. This solves my problem. I hope that it works for you.

EDIT: Also there is a way to turn off sleep in your USB port, but i forgot how to do it. That might help it dissapearing from the task bar.
