I have an Acer Nirto 5 AN515-44 (Ryzen 5) with Windows 10
I put in extra RAM and another NVME no problem.
I also put in the Seagate Firecuda 2.5" SSHD 2TB from my previous Acer laptop and I cannot get it going for the life of me. It was working in the laptop I took it out of though (it was running Linux).

When I go to Disk Management I and try to initialize I get "Incorrect Function" regardless of whether I select MBR or GPT: View: https://i.imgur.com/mFoLCNV.png


It shows up in my Device Manager:

It shows up in my BIOS (though BIOS calls it HDD3 instead of Disc 0)

But it does not show up in diskpart, even after a rescan:

I don't need to save the previous data on it or anything, I just want to use it to store video files, pictures, and music (saving my NVME for gaming.)
Anyone have any idea how I can get it going?

I just thought of something, I set up the 2 NVMEs as Dynamic, could that be the issue? It wants all 3 dynamic?
