    Default Drive not recognized--

    I just received the RunCore SSD model 0900006881 256MB drive. I am using a new Lenovo W700 laptop running Vista Ultimate 64 bit. When connecting the RunCore via USB, it does not show up as a drive. It does show up in device manager as a generic external USB device but is not configurable in any fashion. I thought it was supposed to be plug-and-play and come formatted and loaded with backup software to be able to do a drive clone to replace my original small SSD drive. How do I use this device? There is no documentation and can not access the drive to find a help file. Not impressed with this very expensive drive.

    This may help you...

    Right click my computer, click manage, goto disk management and format the drive there. You can download a trial of the acronis software from their website.

    I'm getting the same result when I tried to format the drive on two different laptops running XP....I see the drive but it is FAT instead of NTFS and then it only formats to 99% and stops and tells me it cannot complete. It's a painful issue.....something is wrong with the microcode.

    Thank you TMDJ. That worked to be able to initiate and do a quick format - using Vista Ultimate 64. Tried using the Acronis but it is so confusing as after downloading, I had no idea which variation to use. Am using Norton Ghost doing disk copy. Hope to finish this evening and see if it all works. My original drive had 3 partitions so giving me some issues with that.
