I have two Identical hard drives [1.5T WD in external caddys with both USB2 & eSata connections]. Both have been in use since I built computer Dec10.
Now I plug them in and their not visable anymore? Their shown as a usb or scsi drive but no assigned drive letter or their "name".
Their showing in the Disk manager and I found I had to manually tell it to mount and assign a drive letter[then their useable]. I tried another removable drive that was USB2 & firewire and the same thing. USB2 ,eSata or firewire and their all not visable in explorer. Yet I can plug in a flash drive and I can immediatly see it once loaded.
Is there a switch in registry or somewhere thats controls this.
All these drives were immediatly available in file explorer previously? Now I am having to use the DM to manually mount and assign them to read/write to them.
