Have 4 external hard drives that I store my photos on and use as backups and for archiving. LR only recognizes my working drive...

What OS are you on?

Have the photos on these external drives ever been imported into Lightroom? If not, use the Import process to add the photos and the drives to your Lightroom catalog.

I am on MS Windows 7 Pro.

I tried importing and that worked! Had moved around some of my external drives and apparently it got the database messed up.

Thanks.

Have a very merry Christmas.
