Windows 7: Can't Tag or Rate Photos on Second Hard Drive

Can't Tag or Rate Photos on Second Hard Drive


I am really digging the ability to rate and tag photos. I take a lot of photos and don't have enough room for them on my C: drive. I have a second internal drive that I store them on. The problem is that I am unable to rate or tag any picture on the second drive. The stars are de-highlighted and tags is not even present in the pane. However, any picture on the C drive can be rated or tagged.

I have tried adding the external drive folder as a library. It addes it properly and allows the arranging functions to be used but I can not tag or rate.

Any suggestions.

Operating System: Windows 7 64 bit (clean install from formatted drive)
