HDD recognition

  cearve 07:49 04 Mar 2006

I have purchased a 3.5" HDD enclosure with a new HDD. When I connect it via a USB connection the computer recognises the drive is there but is not assigning a drive letter to it because the new HDD is not formated. How can I overcome this and format it with a single NTFS partition

Yes, you can format it from there. Right click on it and choose format, I think.
