Computer Not Picking up my New External HD

  RobCharles1981 18:29 10 Feb 2007

I invested in a new External HD which is a Seagate 300gig from Maplin, everything is connected, and the Hard Drive is on, but Windows is not picking up the Drive at all!!

Anything obvious here??

Thank you

Right click my computer > manage > disk management. Is the new disk listed in the right hand window?

If so, right click it and start the wizard.

Hi Ed its not listed in the Wizard, looking in the instruction manual, it says it doesnt like surge protectors.

Thanks Rob
