If you're using sleep mode/hibernation and didn't restart, also check in task manager (hold ctrl + shift + esc) that an instance is not already running - if so, kill em' all (select and hit DEL). I don't say this is the likely reason, but it helps to eliminate (since we have very little information to go by).
And did you install any Windows or driver updates lately?

installer links, perhaps direct exe's don't work without installing

- Open Explorer
- Right-click the C: disk (or the one you have Windows on)
- Select Properties in the menu
- Go to the Tools tab and hit "Check"
Also, did you check for virus?

Alt. run from command line (Hit Windows 10 menu, start typing "cmd" and run as administrator), you could run "chkdsk C: /f /r /x" (replace C: with the drive letter for your externals) to try to fix them, if the cable(s) are fine. Are you using a USB hub btw or are they connected individually/directly?

Plug in the last one, (the one with all the new shit), and VDJ closes. The drive opens in WIN, and can play anything. Did the check drive and all good. Changed cable on that drive, and VDJ closes.
It could be the MBR of the disk that need some fixing. Try the following as a next step:
EDIT: OK, I am going blind. Sorry, I didn't see it opened in Win... The following is then probably overkill. Could be a corrupted database.xml too.. can you open it in an text editor (Notepad or similar) and see that it starts and ends with <VirtualDJ_Database Version="8.3"> .. </VirtualDJ_Database> (version may be different).

- computer will restart and enter command prompt -
- type the drive letter + column for the external drive and hit enter (say "D:" + enter without quotes)
- type in "bootrec /fixmbr"
- next, type in "bootrec /fixboot"
- and finally "bootrec /rebuildbcd"
Restart and try again.
