I am trying to transfer an external Seagate hard drive to an Asus laptop. It's not being recognized, and there is no option to change the drive or path. It's grayed out. I can see the usb Seagate under device manager under disk drives so it is not dead. I don't want to do convert to disk management, because I don't know enough about that. Thanks

I don't know how to paste a screen shot, but it just says the Seagate hard drive that I have. When I right click it, it says update driver software, uninstall, scan for hardware changes, and properties.

u r checking at the wrong place...these options are from device manager...
u need to go to disk management...right click on computer and select manage and then disk management....
or simply type disk management in start menu...

I checked there, but it doesn't allow me to change the path. It only says convert to disk management.
