    I have just built myself a new computer and installed XP Pro 64. I am running
    2 Samsung HD501LJ HDD's in a Raid0 (Striping) configuration. These are brand
    new drives and set as a bootable raid. They show on My Computer as a single
    disk (C Drive). In order to transfer files from my old computer I purchased
    an Akasa Integral USB Interface and installed a Maxtor 6 L200PO hard drive
    from the old computer containing all my files to transfer. Although when
    plugged in to a USB port the hardrive shows in the Device Manager and in the
    System Information it does not show as a usable drive in My Computer and
    therefore I cannot transfer the files from it. I would be grateful for any
    ideas.

    Many thanks

  2. Go into disk manager and assign a drive letter to the disk.
