When you plug the drive in, you get a box asking what you want to do. You must select "Open folder to view files". This will then load the drive and display the files in Windows explorer. You then select Attachment in e-mail and you will be able to see the drive.
I'm using HP Pavilion g6, with Windows 7, and Windows Live Mail. I'm not too happy with WLM, and am thinking of trying Thunderbird. What do you think?
I'm trying to send some pictures and I want to reduce the size of them as I send them.
I'm using Windows Photo Gallery. I open it. My device is listed on the left hand column and when I click to view it, all it will do is try to import all the 3000 pictures I have on there. I don't want to put them into this new computer as they take up a lot of space. So, I just want to send a couple of them in an email. (Maybe in this new computer with 450 GB, it would be okay to import them?)
I can click on photo email as an attachment, and it will give me an opportunity to change the size and put it in the email. That's good, but I can't get to the pictures on my usb drive.
I've dug around and found that it will not read unless the drive is listed under: computer, hard drives, and that is something the manufacturer does.
