It does show in device manager under disk drives. I do not see any yellow exclamation points, it does not have a drive letter, and I did not manually try to format it. It came up device ready to use when I first installed it so I didn't think I had do anything else. Should I go under device mgr. and try to unistall, will it reinstall it itself?
I tried to format it but I get this error: (the operation did not complete because the partition or volume is not enabled. To enable the partition or volume restart the computer) which I did and still got some message. Then I ent thru and assigned a drive letter, it now registers in the drop down menu if i try to save something such as a document. It shows local drive [F:] I can now save files to it.but it is still not showing in my computer so I can move files or try to access the drive, but I lose it if I take it out or restart the computer. When I go back into disk management its not showing a drive letter again.
Agian,thanks for any and all help.
