I have a Nexstar 3 external hdd that I use for backup purposes. It works fine on my laptop, it works fine when I boot up using my secondary Windows 7 OS/drive... it is on its own drive... but it will not show up when I boot up using my primary Windows 7 OS/drive. I guess, specifically, what it comes down to is that it won't show up in Windows Explorer. I even get the friendly "beep" when I connect it, so I know it's being recognized somewhere/somehow, but it won't show up in Windows Explorer, and hence, I can't work with the files. I'm confident the drive isn't faulty, so there has to be some sort of setting or something that I need to turn on to get it to work.
As a secondary, but perhaps related, issue, I can't burn CDs/DVDs when using my primary OS either. Again, I can do it if I boot up using my secondary OS, so it isn't an issue of faulty hardware, as far as I can tell.
Any help getting these long overdue and annoying issues cleared up would be greatly appreciated.
All my best,
