Also you can view the type of device in the Volumes tab in the properties of the device (as we see here Type: Removable).
To make a USB flash drive or an SD card to be recognized as a hard drive in the system, you need a special filter driver, which allows you to modify data sent via the system stack of the current device driver.
A Display Driver is software which enables communication between your computer and your monitor, or screen.
The monitor connects to your computer via the display adapter, which is also known as a graphics card.
If Hitachi Microdrive USB driver is installed on a 64-bit system, since this driver is not digitally signed, you will have to disable the verification of the digital signature for this driver or to sign the driver yourself. Specify the path to the directory to which you have extracted the archive with Hitachi driver you had downloaded earlier. Ignore the warning of the missing digital signature of the driver.
Now you only have to restart the computer and having opened the Disk Manager, verify that the flash drive is identified as a common hard disk (Type: Basic) and uses Hitachi driver.
Option 1: Update Display drivers manually - Use Driver Guide to find the correct driver for your device and operating system.
In this article, we’ll show you how to make a USB flash drive or an SD card to be identified in the system as a common local hard disk. The matter is that by default Windows identifies all the flash drives and memory cards as removable drives that can not be split into several partitions with any of the standard Windows tools. Windows recognizes a USB flash drives as removable devices due to the presence of a special bit descriptor RMB (removable media bit) on each of the devices.
After you upgrade to Windows 10, problems can occur because your current driver may work only for the prior version of Windows.
There are two ways you can update your Display drivers.
We will use a filter driver for USB flash drives by Hitachi (Hitachi Microdrive driver), which allows to change the USB device type from removable to fixed (USB-ZIP - USB-HDD) at the OS driver level.
Using this driver, you can hide from the system that the connected device is removable.
You can do this directly (which is quite risky because of the differences in the device-specific hardware implementations, and not always possible), or indirectly, by substituting the response of a USB device using a special driver, which allows to filter the information in the response of the device.
