'USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned' Error withWestern Digital's External USB drive...
Hi,

I am using Western Digital's 120GB Passport (External USB drive).
Model Number: WD 1200XMSC

It was working fine with my Dell laptop (Windows Vista-Home Basic) and
my Office PC (Win XP).
I was able to copy files from Laptop/ PC to HDD and vice-versa.

One worst day, I printed some pics on my Home Canon IP4000 Printer by
commenting it to USB port. When printing was done I removed Printer
connection and shutDown the laptop.

Next day when I Attached my WD External drive I got this Error saying
-"One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned,
and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this
problem, click this message."


When I clicked the message I got A DialogBox stating USB's status as
Unknown USB device!!!

With my fingers crossed, I tried connecting my WD HardDisk to my
Office PC(Win XP). I got the same Error.

Can anybody please help me here?

++Thanks
P.J. Soni _____________
