    I have an issue with a SATA to USB cable connected to a brand new Seagate HDD being read as a removable media drive instead of a hard drive, meaning I can’t format it or allocate it in any way. I have tried it on multiple computers and with multiple drives, and the issue occurs no matter which drive is connected. I do not know the make/brand of the cable, unfortunately, but under device manager it is recognized as “ASMT 2105 USB Device.” I have tried uninstalling it from device manager, having device manager search for new hardware, and rebooting my computer. None of these has worked to get it recognized as a hard disk drive.

    I appreciate any help with this issue. Thanks.
