Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

The issue is when plugged in, the system could see the device but not assigning any drive letter to it. I have tried this with other systems with the same outcome.

Answers :

I will make a couple of assumptions here: I will assume you are plugging in a hard-drive (usb or Internal) or another form of media storage.

Click Start -> Run -> Type (without quotes) "diskmgmt.msc"

This will load the windows disk management software. You will see a list of hard drives with their associated paritions. If the device you have plugged in is not showing up a partition then you will need to create on by right clicking on the area that says Unallocated and choosing create partition. This will create the useable section of your device and assign a drive letter to it.

You will then need to format the partition by right clicking on it and choosing format. You should now be able to see and use your device
