    I have 6 PC's -- running fine .... BUT ::: 1 PC -- requires me to always go into Computer Manager __ when I connect a ext HD --- and give the drive a letter --otherwise it will not recognize the external ?? Has for over 2 years -- never fails -- Is there a easy work around for this problem ??

    If you most likely did a fresh install of windows, the issue would go away. Something is corrupt, you can try doing the SFC /SCANNOW command at a command prompt to see if any files are corrupt or altered.

    Thanks will try the scan --- will see if I can find the disc -- do a fresh install ... " Need to be the administrator running a console session " -- so have to remember the path ..

    Hello, good evening, the problem that you have, I think, are the USB mass storage controllers will be defective. Try updating all the drivers, one by one until you recognize your device when plugging in to the PC greetings.
