Couple of years ago I built my pc with lots of help form this forum. One little issue I have always dealt with was my WD My Book external drives.
I'm using a GA-X58A-UD3R MOBO, i7 950 cpu. My hard drives show up like this...
Hard Disk Drives (7)
Local Disc (C)
My Book (J) - 1tb
Raid A (M) - 2tb
Raid B (N) - 2tb
Video Music Images (O) - 2tb
Back Up (P) - 1tb
WD Media Ctr (T) - an old 250g WD external drive
My problem is I have 2 WD My Book Drives and only one shows up. If I want to use the other My Book drive, I turn one off and turn the other on, then reboot.
How can I get both drives to show up so I can access either without the on/off, reboot thing?
Go to Disk Management > Storage and assign a drive letter to the drive not recognized. I have to do this whenever I have more than one of my WD My Book externals connected at the same time in Windows 7.
