External Hard Drive Not Showing
« on: November 25, 2012, 01:22:22 PM »
When I plug a external hard drive into my laptop it does not show in computer or desktop.Went into command prompt and it shows there o.k.Does it have to have a designation letter to show and if so how do I do this on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit?.
It was the lack of a designation letter that caused it not to show.Found how to designate and now o.k..Pity there is no way of deleting a message on the forum,if there is I am unable to find it.

Glad you sorted your problem!
You cannot delete your posts completely...But you can sort of remove them, here is how:

1. Look for the icon on the right of your post that looks like a notepad page with a pen or eraser (not sure which it is), click on this.

2. When your post pops up, delete the entire message by backspacing through it.

3. Then just write something like:  "Solved", or "Problem solved" and save the post again.

Best thing to do is simply edit your post to reflect the fact you solved your own problem. Think of it as community service in case someone else runs into the same issue!
