Default Running 2 WD My passport's at the same time, (letter assigning issue)..

It is as simple that both drives gets assigned the same drive letter (which leads to that I only see the first drive connected within the explorer) and I don't want that, instead I want to see both at the same time.

I want each to have different letter so I can use both drives at the same time. I tried to change the letter going into the controlpanel etc etc... and yes the letter gets changed, but for both drives.... The drives are identical. I am using windows 8. This is driving me crazy so I would really appreciate any help on this.

Thanks!

So trick Windows

In the Disk Management console, shrink one of the volumes by 1MB, assign a drive letter.

Connect second Drive, and if letter is not automatically assigned, assign one and then access.

Give that a whirl and post back
