Windows 10: Windows 10 - WD external USB drive

    Windows 10 - WD external USB drive

    Anybody out there having Windows 10 running and also one or more WD drives visible within Windows.
    None of my WD drives show up. Only after installing Western Digital's SES driver, two (of 4) show up.

    When installing Samsung Magician software it got me a warning that it could not communicate with Samsung SSD (personally I think the WD driver could be the cause).

    I never had this with Windows 7 and AFAIK there was no need to install the SES drivers.

    Windows had no problem detecting the drives.

    I have an external 4TB Seagate drive. It worked fine just plugging it in.

    I have 2 x 3Tb WD USB drives. Both work OK on another PC running Win 7 or 10 and show as NTFS in disk manager. But on my PC they show as RAW and cannot be read "the parameters are incorrect". Have tried up dating drivers but they are the latest and changing drive letters. Nothing works. Desperately seeking a solution or its back to Win 7.
