Questions on USB WD HHD

Modems/Cable/DSL/Satellite - Tech Support Forum - www.techsupportforum.com
Howdy ... I have this USB WD 1tb hhd. I use it to record OTA (over the air) TV shows from a DVR. I use software on the computer to edit out all the commercials.

Every time I connect the drive to the computer I have to go into disk management and assign it a letter ... K in my case. I don't understand why I have to assign it every time I hook it up. I don't have to do it with my camera ... the computer always sees it when hooked up. But not the case with this drive.

Also if I remove the hhd and hook it back up, I can assign it the letter K anymore ... I have use letter L ... K is still there but I can't access it. If I unhook and rehooked with out rebooting it would assign a new letter with no assess to the other previous letter assignments. Even though they are still listed. I have to reboot the computer in order to assign letter K again. I don't understand that.

Another thing is after I assign it as K I get a message from windows that there might be problems with the disk and it needs to be scanned ... I'll tell it to scan, then I get a message windows couldn't scan it.

When I use WD diagnostic on the hhd it test good. I don't have any problems with it other than what I described.

Any idea why this is happening? The drive isn't bad, but I don't understand this phenomenon.
