    1.This problem is typically caused by a failing cable that connects the drive to the computer. Check all the cables and be sure they are placed firmly.
    2.Run SFC and see if it replaces any missing OS files.
    To run SFC go to
    -and type sfc/scannow or from command window type the same thing.

    3.Uninstall and re- install the drive.
