    I haven't used it in like 2 months. I thought my computer wasn't detecting it anymore but I just realized it was plugged out. Although it has been turned on this whole time, the lights have been flashing. so I just plugged it back in and none of my files are showing up, and the "Media" is just a folder.


    Are my files gone? It also won't let me place anything in it. it says this when I try:


    Any help would be much appreciated. I don't have that much knowledge of all this stuff. Thanks a lot.
