Problem with USB HDD

Gents,

I have one Toshiba 1TB HDD, Windows can't access it, but linux and myTV can.

Most likely something was damaged (allocation table?), but not enough to destroy data.
Is there a W's way to fix this?


EDIT:

I think I found the way:
chkdsk y: /x /r

Now I have a mystery (not the first time, it happened before) - Chkdsk says all is OK.. but HDD is still not accessible for Windows (7) via USB, and is OK for smart TV.
From windows point of view, this HDD (when accessed via LAN) turned into Media Device for some reason.. refuses access from LAN as storage device, but it has it's webpage ("192.168.1.1:8200"), and I can't read file directory...

And from WiFi adapter/router perspective, it is still HDD, "sd1"
Any ideas?

BTW... I started this thread in wrong place, it was supposed to be Software and Computers.. can moderators help, please?

what did you do last time to fix it?

But wait, you're accessing it via LAN? What's it plugged into? The router? Sounds like it's been setup as a media device intentionally, hence the IP address.

Have you mapped the network drive? (Computer > Map Network Drive)
