Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
My Book WD Premium Edition will not show up with a drive letter. Under disk management it is there and if I click on it it says it is connected and working properly. Without a drive letter I have no way of accessing it. I am running XP with a 2.0 usb. Can anybody help?
I have an external drive case that works fine with a western digital 80gig drive. I switched the dirve with an 80 gig maxtor, jumper set as master from another computer. The problem I am having is that I do not see the external drive under My Computer even though when I right click on my computer,selected manage and disk management I do see the ext. drive without a drive letter assigned to it. Please help.
My operating system is xp professional serv pack 3.

You can try to right click on any part on your desktop screen then click New Shortcut then type F: , then check if now you can access the drive using drive F.
Hope that helps........
