unable to attach to Logical Disk Manager service

1236 Views 9 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  amaul
Hi. In my Computer Management application, I get an "Unable to attach to Logical Disk Manager service" error when trying to look at Disk Management.

How can I solve this? The reason why I'm running this program is because I got a new I/O Magic Gigabank, and a drive letter isn't assigned to it when it's plugged in. I/O Magic's solution is to run this Computer Management application, see here
but it isn't operating as it should be.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

First step, Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Create a restore point and name it something like "Before USB Fix". This is to bail you out if something goes wrong during the following process and makes things worse.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG
-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

NOTE: If you have a USB keyboard and/or mouse, you'll have to modify the instructions and leave enough parts for those to function. I don't have one yet, so I haven't had time to modify the instructions.

After it installs, did you look in Disk Management to see what it thinks about the drive now?
