Hi, I keep getting an error message which says 'Error: Former volume not mounted' and can't download anything.

Any help or advice?
Cheers

Reconnect your external hard drive.

Seriously? What if the drive is broke, or someone is on vacation...or hey...maybe they don't think they should have to use such an external drive? What's up with this reply?

Not trying to flame, but I am having the same problem and the reply above is NOT HELPFUL.

OK guys. Here's a quick and dirty fix.

There's an old command line program called subst, it comes with windows.

Open a command prompt.

Where J: is your missing drive and "c:\mnt" is a blank folder of your choosing...

subst j: c:\mnt

Viola! Can download torrents again!

I was getting the same error message because I had removed the USB drive in which all BitTorrent files were be saved.

I simply plugged in the USB and all is fine.

Hi,

When i DL a torrent this morning, it automatically saved to my SD card that I was working w/photos in.

I did not realize this happened until I tried to find the file.

Now, the SD card is removed. I have tried plugging my external HD in every USB port, including the one it is usually plugged into.

Every time I try to DL a torrent now, it says Error: Former volume not mounted.

PLEASE HELP!!! I have always used my SD card intermittently at the same time as working with torrents via an external drive. Is this a virus or what?!

THANKS!

Hi I tried this and it just says "invalid parameter".

Use disk management to change the drive letters.
