Hello,
I cam trying to access my external hard drive but when I double click on its icon within My Computer it then comes up with a window asking me to 'choose the programme I want to use to open the file'! Please help!
 
What happens if you go to Start -> Run and type ...

explorer X:

... where X is the drive letter of your external drive?

Alternatively, go to Start -> Run and type ...

cmd

This will open a DOS window.

Now type ...

dir X:\ /s /p

The above command should list the files on your external drive.

Type Ctrl-Break or Ctrl-C to abort the listing, and type "exit" to return to the Windows GUI.
