    New drive not showing up in explorer or disk management


    Its a 4TB Barracuda Pro 6 GB/s


    It shows up in the BIOS (of course it does) but nowhere else.


    When I first went into disk management I got a prompt asking which partition I wanted and I chose GPT, but the drive didn't show up after.


    Ive tried different sata ports, memory test (online recommendation)


    When I restart or turn on my computer I can hear the windows disconnect sound clip (the ones that plays after unplugging a USB) at the login screen.

    Only thing I haven't tried is installing the drivers, and that's because I don't have another PC to assist is things go south.

    :)

  2. My External Toshiba DVD Drive doesn't show up

    Hi Charsmann,



    The above issue might occur if a drive letter is not allotted to the external drive.



    Please reply, did you try removing and re-plugging the driver to the PC?



    Since the drive shows in Device manager, I suggest you to remove the external drive and re-plug to check if the issue is resolved.



    If the issue persists, check if you are able to open the drive via
    Disk management
    by following the steps below:



    • Connect the external drive to the PC, press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Disk management option from the context menu. Check if the drive is visible in the window.
    • If visible, right click on the external drive and select Open. Check if you are able to open the drive in
      File Explorer.
    • Close the Disk management window, open File Explorer (Windows logo + E keys on the keyboard) and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of the external drive not showing in File Explorer on the PC for further assistance. Your reply is important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
