Don’t install or uninstall Smartware then and it should work like a normal drive.


Hey there, If you only want to use the drive as a normal storage device, you can uninstall Smartware(in case it is in your applications) and simply Drag and Drop the files to your external. If  you click on the part underlined you will see instructions and detailes about what I am reffering.
