Issue accessing files from PC

Up until yesterday, my phone was working just fine.  When I went to plug it in to update some podcasts, hit mount as Disk Drive, and both G and F drives pop up saying "You need to format the disk in drive G: before you can use it."  Previously it had been completely fine and the files for both would just pop up. 

I have tried restarting both, installed HTC Sync in case there was a driver issue, and updated the android USB devices in device manager.

Is this just going to have to be a factory reset, or does anyone have any other ideas?

Re: Issue accessing files from PC

Can you still access your files from your phone? Maybe the data got corrupted. Also, with a FDR, you will lose anything in internal memory, your SD card will be safe (assuming it's still good).
