Thank you

Try this 1.

Check in the "Disk Management".

Click on Start --> In search bar, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter.

"Disk Management" window will be opened. If you notice a partition without a

drive letter then right-click on it --> Select "Change Drive Letter and Paths..." -->

Click on "Add" button --> Add --> Select the drive letter --> Click on OK.

Good Luck

Thank you, jack4rall 11

Hi I recently bought 1TB WD passport. It is not recognised by Win7. I tried connecting to 2 laptops and 1 desktop but no use. Even it is not shown in the disk management. I have download all available tools from WD website but of no use. I have tried using other cable as well. Is there any other solution, which I should try? Your support will be very helpful
I tried to do this, and I saw the "change letter" when I right-clicked, but it was not clickable.
What should I do?
Thank my life
