I already got 2 Ssd M.2.5 and etcher see them perfectly but, i want burn my image on a hdd and etcher wont do it…
Thanks for your reply !

Hi, what do you see if you run diskpart from command line then list the drives with list disk? Could you paste here the output?
Side note: it might be that the new version overrode the settings, could you please check the settings page again if you need to disable safe mode?

Drive 0 is the one i want to flash, other are personal ssd
I already test with and without safe mode, nothing change (exept for ssd drives :smiley: )

@lagaffe91 I couldn’t reproduce this on my windows computer.

Etcher uses drivelist to list drives.
On windows this relies on some C++ code.
It would be really helpful if you could try installing drivelist from sources directly and tried it (you’ll need to install node and some tooling first).

git clone https://github.com/balena-io-modules/drivelist.git
cd drivelist
npm i
./node_modules/.bin/ts-node example/index.ts

This should output the list of drives. If your drive is missing, something must be wrong in https://github.com/balena-io-modules/drivelist/blob/master/src/windows/list.cpp .

Ok.
What is should exactly install with node ?
I nerver do that :sweat_smile:

NodeJS is a javascript runtime build on Chromes V8 javascript engine. We’ve created a software package called drivelist that etcher uses to list connected drives on all major operating systems. You can find instructions on how to install node here https://nodejs.org/en/ and then follow the instructions posted previously by @zvin to see if drivelist is behaving as expected. Thanks!
