Hi,

I suggest you try the following as suggested in this answer.

Here are the steps:

  • 1. Explorer - right click on Computer - Manage
  • 2. Disk Management in left window
  • 3. In lower portion of middle window find your external drive (maybe Disk 1). Try disconnecting and reconnecting USB cable to identify if having difficulties.
  • 4. Right click inside a white rectangular block - Change Drive Letter
  • 5. Assign a different letter (ex: P)



Hope this helps.
