Hello,

I keep getting a message that my startup disc is full. I have my Seagate external drive plugged in, but it isn't showing up.

After plugging in the device, go to device manager (In run type "devmgmt.msc") In Device manager go to "Universal serial bus controllers" It should list the storage devices that you have connected to your PC. Right click and then click "Uninstall. Remove the USB drive and restart your system.
Try connecting the device again
