    Sometimes Windows get confused if there's a conflict with Drive letters of the drives. Open Disk Management and look at each disk to see if there's a letter assigned to each of them. If not, right click on it and select Change Drive letter and Paths

    To open disk management: Win+X->Disk Management.
