i am running win xp. i have just bought icy box which in effect is a hdd in a case-external to pc connected via usb 2, i was told by the "salesman" on connecting up to pc to right click on my computer select manage then it would automaticall guide me through set up process ie name drive format etc however i do this and all i get is a root directory and if i click on removeable storage it descends down to my drives ?

It should work roughly as he told you - you did RIGHT click?

Otherwise do it this way

Start - Settings - Control panel - Administrative tools - Computer management - Disk management.

You should then see your new drive, and you can set it up.
