When drive is attached to computer via USB cable and switched on, Windows does not build a drive letter for it.
Posted on 2007-08-08
This is a Beyond Micro brand external SATA hard drive that uses a USB connector to connect to the computer. I have tried this drive on three different machines all with the same result. The computer will recognize the drive but will not assign a drive letter. When I go to Computer Management / Disk Management I see the drive with the following description:
465.76 GB 465.76 GB
Online Healthy (GPT Protective Partition)
When I right click the right side of the drive description (the area that contains the GPT Protective Partition description, I get only the help option as selectable (everything else is grayed out). On Disk 0, when I right click the same area, I get Open, Explore, Change drive letters and paths and Properties as my selectable choices. Any help with this would be most appreciated.
