Hello I hope someone can help.
Using XP Pro on a reasonably decent machine.
Have three internal hard drives Seagate 500gb, Maxtor 320gb both SATA.
Also a Seagate 160 ATA but this does not show nor can I access it even though
it is connected properly.
I would like to use this as a backup drive Acronis being the software.
Also have 1T external HDD usb but that does not show either in my computer.
Thanks but that was not the solution, I have removed the ATA drive as I am
not sure it works too well so remove it from the equation.
Which means why can I not see my external usb HDD so I can use it to back up with
which was the only reason I bought it in first place.
Does it show in Disk Management? Right Click My Computer, Click on Manage then scroll down and click on Disk Management. If no drive letter is assigned it won't show up so right click it and assign a drive letter.
Hi, and Merry Christmas to all.
I have a spare BIOS battery so can try that.
The drive used to show as I was using it as my back up until now.
Has its own power supply and tried other USB ports to no avail.
It does show in device manager but I cannot find how to assign a drive letter as suggested, right clicking on it does not provide that option unless
it is me being thick.
Thanks for your replies.
