14 Aug 2011   #11

windows 7 home premium

Another piece of information I forgot: the device, which is defintely a HDD - click free C2N Portable - is a USB 3.0 device. By the way I wrote to click free and once I get a reply I will report here. I hope its helpful.

Thank you for this advice. This goes definitely beyond my capabilities. I want simply that windows recognises my device as what it is a simple USB connected HDD. Then I assume that I can do all what I want to do.

If you have no DATA on partition 1 of the Ext HD, try cleaning in diskpart first:
Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
