I have an external backup drive which I turn on occasionally. Sometimes XP recognises it and sometimes it doesn't. When windows doesn't see the drive I switch it off, wait a few minutes and turn it on again, then usually it works. Sometimes I have to do this 3 or 4 times.
Can anyone tell me why XP doesn't recognise it every time? Is there anything I can do to tell Windows to see the drive?
