As theOG said, you cannot have more than 4 primary partitions on a disk. It should be working just fine, if you test it out through copying some files and opening them that will answer your question

  • Primary partition - a primary partition can be used to boot an Operating System. Your Windows OS is installed on a primary partition.
  • Extended partition - an extended partition is used to hold logical drives.
  • Logical drives - logical drives hold files unrelated to the Operating System - pretty much everything else on your computer - data, audio, video, etc.
