I've got a spare 10.2 gig hd which i want to use as storage, when i connect it up my computer doesnt see it but it does appear in the device manager. Im using XP pro and it's a second hand ExcelStor hard drive.
Thanx for any help

In Windows go to disk managemennt (right click on my computer choose manage then disk manager). Is it there if so is there a message on it or try right clicking then partition and format it.

Go into Disk Management and ensure it is initailised, partitioned and formatted.

It will then be seen in My Computer.

The drive doesnt show up on disk management..so i suppose it's a dead disk??
