The computer has the name of it but it still lists it as a standard disk drive under properties. And it ain't. What I have to find is a way to tell the computer and the disk that it is a removable storage device. I don't know how to do that when the wizards don wanna.

Also, go back to device manager and double click the device, and go to the driver tab. Then click on driver details. Tell me what it says

well the drivers are correct. I really do not know what is wrong with it. Bring it to a computer repair shop, Because I really have no freaking idea what is wrong with it.
I'm sorry I can't help anymore, but I've tried, at least know that. Good luck and hopefully you don't lose any information
