Hi, I'm having trouble having 2 external drives plugged in to my computer. Both work fine on their own when I disconnect the other but windows won't detect both of them at the same time and to make matters worse. The mouse isn't detected unless I remove one of the drives. I've tried everything including assigning another drive letter to the new drive but nothing works and the mouse just doesn't want to work when ever both of them are plugged in.

Yes I've seen that user's method. Both drives are online in the disk manager by themselves. I've already backed up an internal drive using my new external drive but can't do it simultaneously with my first drive. It's bizarre that my mouse doesn't want to work when I plug in the second one too. Has to be a windows 10 problem and its driving me insane.
