Windows 10: Windows 10 Anniversary update problems, not recognizing external hdd
As it's been a week since the last post, does anyone know if there has been a patch for this USB problem as I have this error with a data-full NTFS USB drive?
registered to say I'm also having this issue with my WD 1TB passport drive on 2 systems I updated on Tuesday night. Figured it was the update when I plugged it into my wife's 1511 laptop and my Samsung smart TV both of which read the drive fine.
Hit up google for a fix, found this thread and others on reddit but no actual fix. I can't believe it's been a month and this is still an issue. I'm rolling back both PC's back to 1511 tonight. Sucks because I wanted to play the new Forza Apex release which requires AU
Interesting side note, I had to force the update using the downloadable Win 10 upgrade assistant on the system I had the drive plugged into because "check for updates" wouldn't give me the 1607 update. It still doesn't show on my wife's laptop either. Maybe the built in windows update detects external drives and doesn't give you the update because MS is aware of the problem?
I have 3 Laptops. One has Windows 7. Another has Windows 10, non Anniversary Update (AU) & this one, which I manually updated to the AU v1607. I have eleven external HDD's, 5 portable & 6 powered. A mixture of Western Digital & Seagate. All worked fine on all 3 laptops, before I updated this one. After the AU, my laptop recognised all of the external drives, except one. It showed as RAW. I was able to copy it's contents to one of the other drives, using the other Win 10 laptop. After reading the Microsoft forum post about the problem, which has still not been fixed after a month of them finding out about it, I was left with 2 choices. Either roll back the AU or format the drive & see what happens. The quicker of the two was to format. I did a quick format & my laptop recognized the drive. I am transferring files back to it. I unplugged it & it is recognised by my other laptops & this one, when I replug it back in.
This must be a new drive; Capacity = Free Space. You need to initialize and format the drive in order for Windows to recognize. Here's a step by step tutorial -

Hi, just wanted to report that I just updated to Windows update KB3189866, and now my Toshiba Canvio Basics 3.0 external HDD is working correctly!
Now my system looks like this:
Windows 10 Home Edition 64 bits
OS Build 14393.187
After the last cumulative update (KB3189866), my WD passeport is still not working with W10 AU...
I'm not surprised since there has been no confirmation the bug has been fixed.
My WD passport 1TB is working after the last update (KB3189866). I think this update fixed that bug
What the hell... My WD Passeport 500go still not recognized, and I can read users reporting this update solved the issue... I don't get it
