I think you are mixing up Margo with Woody, Woody is the OP for this thread. Margo came in a little later with similar issues. Margo has a 722, as she just told us, and Woody has a Hopper.

That’s correct, mine is a Hopper.

Of course you are performing an Unmount before you pull the USB. Or at least shutting the receiver off before.
Right?
Pulling a USB drive of any kind before and unmount or in Windows, Safely Remove Hardware, is the death of them.
I would run my favorite Linux bootable image or run it in a virtual machine environment and run a fsck and see what happens.

As long as a transfer is not in progress, I have never had a problem just pulling the USB from the H3 on my EHDs. The receiver recognizes the EHD is no longer there and acknowledges that fact.
