i have just installed a usb 2 port in my computer and also bought an internal drive and a external case for it. but it is not recognised at all. if i run belarc adviser it states that i have a 250 gig hard drive so i prusume it is working.but HOW DO I USE IT ??????
Thats what I was trying to find the website for. Since you say its an internal hard drive I would suggest connecting it up internally as a normal hard drive, formatting it using your Windows XP CD or your boot floppy if you're using 98 and then trying it again in the caddy. The only thing I can think of is its not being recognised as its not formatted. Before you do that though one question I presume the drive is not showing in My Computer when you plug it in?
Since its an internal drive you say you have in the external drive caddy then I would install it as a normal drive on its own, make it the master, boot from your XP CD and allow the drive to be formatted, then once its formatted cancel the installing windows, plug your normal drive back in and reassemble your newly formatted drive in the caddy and try it again.
