windows 10 will not back up to my 3TB seagate external hard drive- gives a semaphore error

I also have difficulty opening mp4 and jpg files on the seagate.

windows 10 needs a lot of time to recognize the drive at all.

how can i confirm all my photos and videos got on the seagate drive?
the drive does not go with the seagate dashboard-
is there a compatibility problem with windows 10, do I need a new EHD?

I have a 2 GB version of the drive and Win 10 handles it OK. It is configured as MBR but it would be interesting to see how the larger drive is configured. I would be concerned the system used some type of software to make it compatible with older systems which could not use a drive configured as GPT.

If you open Disk Management and right click on the Disk 1 or 0 part of the display you will see a menu which will show either convert to MBR or convert to GPT. Your drive is configured as the opposite of what that says.
