So my computer recognizes the device(s) , but it wont allow me to access my files within the hard drive.
I haven't really got any error messages other that the windows is not responding, when trying to open a folder i did get one error that said I/O device error. I dont get it, b/c i was just watching recorded tv and videos from it last night.
My Computer: HP Pavilion Media Center TV m8100y

The drive does not show up under windows explorer. Under Disk Management, the drive shows up as Not Initialized and Unallocated. When I try to initialize the drive I get "The media is write protected" Restarted the PC and also the external hard drive and the same thing.
I am running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.
