Hi, I have a Seagate external hard drive that I use to store my music on. I use Zune software and it automatically scans the drive when I plug it into the USB. The first computer I connected it to, it worked fine. (A gateway laptop). The second computer (Asus desktop) can't read/change/play the music data. A message comes up in Zune saying that the music is either removed, gone, or the hard drive is not plugged in, which it was. I tried unchecking the read-only box in the properties tab, but it still doesn't work. Any help please? Oh, and both computers have Windows 7.
