Hi,

I've looked at various threads and still cannot solve this issue.

My Seagate Portable Drive seems to work as the green light comes on.

Screen shot of my Disk Management below. Am I missing something?

Other solutions have been to right click and assign a drive, but those listed below other that the C: don't allow.

Using OS Windows 8.1
Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Make sure all drivers are to date, at ACER web site.

Will the drive work on other PC?

It worked on my old laptop, but not on this one or another family members new one.
Maybe its just too old and doesn't work on new hardware.
Ill try the Drive updates with Acer. Thanks.
