Why does my PC have difficulty access an external HD?

    I've got a Western Digital external hard drives; one of those My Book things.  Had it for several months now, and it's worked fine for me most of that time.  I have it shared out off of my Linksys router.  Recently, I've been having trouble accessing it from my computer (a Windows 7 machine), but the rest of the computers in my home network are able to access it fine.  Or at least it appears that way.  I've really been puzzled by this.  The only possible thing I can think of is both the Western Digital HD and the Linksys router are both very close to my PC.

     

    Anyway, why is my machine having these problems but others aren't?

    Both the Western Digital HD and the Linksys router are very close to my PC.  Could that have anything to do with it?
