You can fix the problem by manually assigning a drive-letter to it: Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management In the bottom-right pane, find the ribbon which represents the Passport drive (it will have no name or drive-letter, and may have "Raw" as the partition-type). Right-click it and choose "Change Drive Letter & Paths", then click "New". Choose a letter from the drop-down. Click 'OK' or 'Next'. m 0 l Mick 007 January 11, 2013 11:21:13 PM It took my a while to find my files too, but they are there. Open My Computer and look for My Passport.
