Why some External Drives don't show up?
Dec 14, 2012

This has happened with my old Win 7 machine and my current Win 8 desktop:

In Windows Explorer, sometime one of my external WD drives (I have 3) will not show up.  It's not a specific one, it could be anyone of them.  If I reboot, the same ones may show up, or may not, it could be any combination.  2 are USB3 plugged into the correct ports and the other is a USB2 plugged into the correct port.  These are the exact same drives I used with my old machine and they did this with the old machine.  I don't get it.  Any ideas?
