USB Conundrum

  Hrosir 19:10 06 May 2004

I have just added a new external drive to my pc. The drive is 120gb ide mounted in an external case converter. The drive is pichked up by Windows xp, but it does not appear in the MY COMPUTER panel although it does show in show hardware section. The drive is connected via a usb 2 cable. Is it possible that the capacity is too large?

Have you created a partition and formatted it?

You have to give it a letter in the control panel

PS when you have done that you can just right click the drive and choose format
