My problem is that in Explorer, the devices show up as Hard Drives (right next to C:) and not as removable drives. In order for me to use the USB/DVD tool to install the Windows 8 Preview, the target drive must be recognized as a removable drive.
I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit (it's an older PC) and Seagate does not provide their own driver for this drive. It is using the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\disk.sys and C:\Windows\System32\drivers\partmgr.sys drivers.
When I try to specify a driver manually, the usbstor.sys driver isn't listed as compatible with my device.
Any ideas on how to get this drive to display as Removable?
