Disk Drive Shows Up In Device Manager But Not My Computer


When you install a disk drive, Windows installs the disk drive's drivers and assigns the disk drive a Drive Letter. When your disk drive shows up in the Device Manager, but is nowhere to be found in My Computer, this means the drivers installed, but Windows didn't assign the disk drive a Drive Letter. The following procedure will help you to assign your disk drive a Drive Letter in Windows XP, Vista & 7. Note: You cannot modify the drive letter of your main partition on your PC.

Windows XP
  1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance. Note: If you do not see Performance and Maintenance, go to step 3. Performance and Maintenance appears in Control Panel only if you use Category view. If you use Classic view, Performance and Maintenance does not appear.
  3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
  4. Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, and then either accept the default drive letter or click the drive letter that you want to use.
  7. Click OK.
  8. You can now close any open Computer Management, Administrative Tools, or Control Panel windows.

Windows Vista
  1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Maintenance link. Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Just double-click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Maintenance window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
  5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left. Disk Management should appear on the right side of the Computer Management window after just a few seconds of loading. Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the '> icon to the left of Storage.
  6. On the right-hand side of the screen, locate and right-click on the drive that you wish to change the drive letter of and choose Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  7. In the Change Drive Letter and Paths window, click on the Change... button.
  8. The Change Drive Letter or Path dialog box will appear. Choose the drive letter you wish to assign to this partition. Click OK.
  9. The Confirm window that appears advises you that "Some programs that rely on drive letters might not run correctly. Do you want to continue?" Note: If you have software installed to this drive, the software may stop functioning after a drive letter change. Nearly all software defaults to the primary drive though, so this is rarely a concern.
  10. If you're sure you want to make this change, click Yes.
  11. You can now close any open Computer Management, Administrative Tools, or Control Panel windows.

Windows 7
  1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Security link. Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link so just click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Security window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
  5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left side of the window, located under Storage. After a brief loading period, Disk Management should now appear on the right side of the Computer Management window. Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the '> icon to the left of the Storage icon.
  6. On the right-hand side of the screen, locate and right-click on the drive that you wish to change the drive letter of and choose Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  7. In the Change Drive Letter and Paths window, click on the Change... button. The Change Drive Letter or Path dialog box will appear.
  8. Choose the drive letter you wish to assign to this drive by clicking the letter from the drop-down box on the right. Click OK.
  9. The Disk Management window that appears advises you that "Some programs that rely on drive letters might not run correctly. Do you want to continue?" Note: If you have software installed to this drive, the software may stop functioning after a drive letter change. Nearly all software defaults to the primary drive though, so this is rarely a concern.
  10. If you're sure you want to make this change, click Yes.
  11. You can now close any open Computer Management, Administrative Tools, or Control Panel windows.
