Mediamonkey sees local drives as removable

Post by jomtones » Sat Feb 08, 2014 6:57 am

Just upgraded to 4.1.0 and my (several) drives, partitions are all showing as removable devices. Any way to fix this?

Thanks

Options > Portable devices, uncheck the boxes next to your local drives.

Windows represented then to MMW as Media Drives. Check ROOT folder for hidden files.

Thanks nohitter - that solved it. I tried the registry fix first but it had no effect. Installing the Intel package sorted things out, no idea why but fingers crossed, seems OK for now. Guess I should have used raid in the bios when setting up this PC. Doh!
