Yoga S1 - USB hard drive visible in Disk manager but not in file manager

2015-10-18, 14:13 PM

Hi, "Huston, I have a problem"


Bought a second hand thinkpad yoga s1 first gen. Running win 8.1 all up to date


Having a number of problems setting it up


Latest, I plug in a new USB3 2tb passport drive. (seagate backup plus slim)


It shows in disk manager but not in explorer, ie I can't see the disk or any of the content.


The drive works fine on my old win 7 laptop, installs automatically and all content is visible.


I have hented through the forums and seen a variety of possibilities. Nothing seems to totally fit.


I tried uninstalling all the USB controlers and re starting but this just caused more problems and the drive did not show up at all, ie not in disk manager either, so just restored to original condition.


All help appreciated. I like the machine and need something like this for my work / studies BUT it has to work! ;-)
