So I just installed the Max 5 duo today in a win 7 ultimate machine with essentially a brand new build.
My issue is I have the C drive, a D drive that is also in an older Tray-less drive, and then the E drive in the Max Duo.
--If I start the machine with the max on, all drives show up fine. I can then "Safe eject" the Max drive, and turn off the Max, leaving the disk plugged in but off.
Then, if I turn on the Max drive again, the D drive disappears and no sign of the E drive either. I then go into Device manager to scan disks and the Max drive immediately mounts, without the D drive. Device manager does not see the D drive. Disk management shows the D drive, disk 2, completely missing from the lineup. If i hit rescan disks under disk management nothing comes up.
If I then turn off the Max Drive, manually eject the old trayless "missing" D drive and reinsert it, it shows up in device manager and eventually also in the computer.
I have tried changing to full permissions, I have tried giving the Max drive a path letter of M to make sure there is no conflict, and same results.
So it appears when i turn on the MAX I see in Disk Management my D drive is kicked out of Disk 1 and the MAx drive takes its place. Disk 2 in Disk management is strangely absent....?
Edit, If I restart with Max on I see Drive 2 in disk management, with C being Disk 0, D being Disk 1 and the Max drive as Disk 2.
