Fruit Bat / \O/ \. Yesterday you suggested that I might be able to disconnect the ext. HDD and reinstall it using the Add New Hardware wizard. This has indeed worked for now. The drive is recognised as 'G'. Drive 'H' when checked out turned out to be my HP 2210 all-in-one printer! The 'H' drive showed up in 'detected hardware' in the Add New Hardware wizard as an HP 2200 device and the My Computer 'H' Drive icon promptly disappeared when the HP printer was turned off. Anyone any idea what's going on please?
