Alesis Fusion: computer seeing hard drive

Post by Purveyor » Thu Jan 16, 2014 5:12 pm

I recently purchased a used Fusion 8hd and am wanting to load it with all of the extra banks from the Alesis web site. The Fusion is in great physical shape, boots up just fine (with latest OS) and sounds/plays perfectly. However, when I connect it to my Window 7 machine—the Fusion acknowledges that it is USB ready to transfer files. But… my windows machine does not see the Fusion’s hard drive. I also tested this with a Windows XP laptop—with the same result. I have not experienced this when working with other external hard drives or transferring files or updating operating systems on other synths. Any Fusion owners that know what I might be missing?

What does the manual say should happen?

All of the manuals, guides and video demos (I reviewed prior to reaching out to Fusion owners) show that it is supposed to recognize it as an external hard drive--where you can drag files from your computer to the Fusion. I am sratching my head on this one.
