I have just bought an external HD enclosure and fitted in it maxtor 200Gig HD. Plugged in in device manager it is there but not seen in My Computer.

How do I format the drive. Iam using XP with service pack 1.

Many thanks,

John

It's probably just as easy to hook up in main pc as slave and format that way.

Right click on my computer

choose manage

then disk management

If it is there, you can format / partition it.
