USB Disk / Removable Media Appear as local disk to windows

Hello.

I want to know if there is any way to make a "USB Disk" (removable media) appear as "Local Disk" to the windows.
There are some applications that will only work with local disk, and I want them to use my USB disk.

Thanks!

Hi there,
To my knowledge, as longs as it is connected to a USB interface it is interpreted as "Removable".
Which applications are you referring to?

in your mainboard BIOS settings i think you can set usb drives to appear as Fixed Disks. at least in mine i can. i will largely depend on how old ur mainboard is. refer to ur mainboard manual.
