I have an external hard drive. i got my new computer yesterday and when i hooked the external hard drive to my computer it worked fine and i was able to view some stuff i saved to it. but then i pulled the cord out(the usb cable for the external drive before i safely turned the computer off) then later on when i plugged it back in it seems like it wont load to my computer. and when i go to "my computer" and click on the drive for the external one which is f, it says there was an error and there was a I/O device error and its inacessible. what does that mean? the lights on the external drive keep blinking.
can anyone help?
