My System Specs

Default WD My Book Help PLEASE!

My gf deleted a file on our WD 250GB MyBook external drive and now it won't work.
She said it was in a folder (or something) called recycler (or something) .
Windows is not detecting it and I'm not sure what to do.
Tried the basics like unplugging it and trying to get windows to find it and whatever... now what can I do?

Now WindowsXP is saying that the device is not being recognised...
Something about it malfuncioning... I don't know... she keeps doing this shit without me around...

Can anyone help?
Is the drive now???
It won't even work on my computer...

I unplugged it again and plugged it back in and now it works...
Still not sure what exactly happened or why it works now but at least it works.
Was about to try mounting it internally...

Yeah, every now and then, I get the same problem on my own Mybook. Probably a pissy USB-SATA converter causing the problems.
