External storage device & Windows 7 Home premium

Hi

I have a 500GB external hard drive and I used Spotmau to wipe the entire drive clean. Now, Windows 7 does not list the drive in'Computer', but the device manager says it is working correctly. Spotmau support have not been able to solve this.

  1. Go into disk management and see if it needs reinitialized. It won't show up in my computer until it's been properly formatted and assigned a drive letter.

    Hi Hawkeye22

    Many thanks for that. I have wasted nearly two weeks emailing spotmau support and despite them telling me to do this and that, nothing worked, yet you solved it in one sentance.

    Thanks again.
