Solved Port replicator seen as USB drive

I have a Windows 10 laptop attached to a HP HSTNN-IX07 port replicator. As soon as the laptop is connected to the replicator, it thinks it's a USB drive and prompts me to format the drive. When the cable is unplugged from the laptop, the USB drive goes away. Anyone have an idea what's going on? Also, the laptop is connected to the replicator with a USB cable that goes into the SSUSB port. There is no port listed specifically for a computer. Does that sound right?

There are 3 drivers and a diagnostic program available for that port replicator, have you installed them?

I only see 2 drivers and the latest one I see is for Windows 8. Can you share the link you're going to for the drivers? I'm not sure I'm in the right place. Thanks.
