    Some software packages not seeing hard disk as local drive


    Hi all, I have an ASUS vivotab smart running windows 8.1 pro with media centre. The tablet is running it well. One problem I am having is that some packages, such as the samsung smartview for windows 8 does not recognise the hard disk on the tablet or the 64gb sd card I have installed as a local drive.

    Anyone know a work around or fix?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mick

    What does diskmgmt.msc say about the drive - does it report as a local drive there?

8.1 installed on SSD, Easeus backup doesn't see my HDD any more, so I can't make an image of it. It only sees the C drive and my external hard drive, but not the internal HDD (Hitachi 500 GB) that I use as a second drive for storing personal data. I tried with Macrium Reflect, and same problem.
