Hi I have a computer and it is'nt working and i suspected the HDD so i put the hdd in an external case and plkugged it into another computer and when i click on the drive it says
F:\ is not accessible
error performing inpage operation
you can then only click ok and you can not enter the HDD
that drive is shown as healthy and active in computer management
i have run chkdsk and it doesnt bring anything up and says that F: is not accessible then does it on my other drives.

any help is greatly apreciated

Most likely it is corrupted data, or an impending HDD failure. I see you tried chkdsk on the drive, but did you use the /r switch (eg chkdsk e: /r)? I'm not sure if this works on external USB HDDs though - never tried. If all else fails, pug it in inside the box. This can fix a great deal of issues without damaging your data. If this doesn't work, try running up a linux boot disk and see if you can access the data this way.

Microsoft explaination:

I can't brain today. I have the dumb.
