    I'm in the Computer Management console trying to start the Disk Management
    snap-in so I can format a new hard drive. Computer Management > Storage >
    Disk Management.

    All I get is "Connecting to Virtual Disk Service ... " in the status line.

    Under Services, the Virtual Disk Service is Started (Automatic) and the
    services it's dependent on are also started.

    I can see the new disk in Device Manager, and a pop-says Windows has
    installed the disk and it's ready to use. If I remove the disk I still cannot
    get Disk Management to start.

  2. Hi

    I have exactly the same problem, I have tried setting the service to
    Manual, and starting it up, I have tried resetting it, and also leaving
    it on Automatic.

    However the Disk Management still shows up as "Unable to connect to
    Virtual Disk Service"

    Any ideas? Anyone solved it?

    Cheers guys/girls

    I have the same problem.
    I can not see the disks from the disk manager. the message " connecting
    to the virtual disk" is the only output of this process.

    NOTE: I had the WV (Windows Vista) on the sda2 and linux on sda1.

    I have also a problem with the Wi-Fi
