  1. External D Drive doesn't show up on file explorer.


    I got the 'USB Device Not Recognized' message last week while trying to plug in my external drive, it doesn't show up in file explorer, none of the files have been deleted and as far as I know it is recoverable. Can someone help with this one? Mine is 10586.122 and version 1551.

    :)

    File Explorer Not Showing External "A" Drive

    I plugged an external "A" drive into my computer via a USB port with File Explorer open. The "A" drive shows up, but only for about 2 seconds and then it goes away. I changed USB ports and it does the same. I checked Device Manager under "Floppy Drives"
    and it shows the "A" drive connected. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks!!

    External drives show twice in file explorer In Windows 10 external usb drives show twice in file explorer.

    External drives show twice in file explorer

    In Windows 10 external usb drives show twice in file explorer. Once under This PC and again under Desktop. How do eliminate one?

    According to support this isn't a flaw. I consider it to be a design flaw. The second appearance of the usb connected D drive is NOT under libraries.
