In Wn10, MYbook shows up in devices, but not in file manager. Disk management shows it as 'unknown', unallocated, not initialized.
Neat Scanner Driver For Windows 10. I've been using it for a while for my graphics files. I have thousands of photos and art files. I cannot afford to reformat or do anything that loses the files. Google Usb Driver For Windows 10 here. I loaded the SES file, but when I click on it, I don't see anything happening.
WD's drive diagnostic doesn't 'see' the drive. In disk management, a popup gives me the option of initializing using MBR or GPT. I have unplugged, replugged, moved from USB 3 to USB2, still nothihg. So here is the answer for everyone.
I had the same issue as all of you. The drive would show up in Device Manager as well as Computer Management but not in My Computer. It would show up as 'Drive 0' in Computer Management. Now because the computer does not know what it is really, the 'Right Click' and format is not an option.
However if you right click on it in Computer management and select 'Create Simple Volume' I believe is the option it will walk you through a setup to assign a drive letter, an option to format or not format and when it is done you will see your drive and be able to use it in 'Computer'. Hope this helps those that are not getting an answer from the company. I had My Book connected to a desktop running Windows Vista. It worked fine for backing up my files. The old desktop recently died. I need to restore my files to a laptop running Windows 10.
