I have a PC running Vista with 2 harddrives - both internal. I have been using it for quite sometime with no problems.
But all of a sudden I noticed that when my PC came awake after sleeping that the autoplay kept coming on. But I didn't know why. Since then I have started having problems with that drive.. it's running really slow and chkdsk is coming on when I bootup but hanging and never completing.
Now the drive freezes constantly when I try to access files.
It seems that my PC is treating my harddrive like a DVD drive or something. Is there some way to fix this?
I have run a diagnostic program from the drive manufacturer - Western Digital.. checks out fine.
I have an adapter that allows me to use my harddrives as USB drives and i am hoping I can repair them this way -- attached to a uninfected PC... but I will this make the process here any different?
