[RESOLVED] External Hard drive
Hi to everybody. I am new to this forum just got here from newegg.com
Like most people over here I am having a problem. I just bought a Toshiba harddrive 120G SATA (see link) and an external case for it (see link). I assembled the two together and when I plug it to my computer, I get the message that it detected the new hardware and installed the components but I cannot access it (there is no icon under My Computer).
If anybody has any experience with this I would really appreciate your help.

You are going to need to partition and format the drive.
Go to Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management. You should see the disk there. Right click on it and set it up.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll try it once I get home since I don't have administrative rights on my work PC.

Thanks for the help, it worked. It took me a few minutes to figure out the whole setup (new to Windows Vista) but I got it at the end.
