    Hi,

    I keep getting an ftdisk event 57 warning on my external and it keeps bringing up autplay which makes it seem like the hard drive is being plugged in and out all the time.

    Any idea how I can resolve this problem please as it's really not usable at the moment being 'disconnected' all the time :(

    Thanks,
    Craig.

    Think I have sorted it with a chkdsk /R /X F: (F: is the externals drive letter) as Microsoft suggested.

    Craig.
