portable hard drive

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Warren Davies, Nov 9, 2005.

  1. I hae just made up a portable hard drive with a maxtor drive and caddy. When
    plugged into the USB port it is recognised but will not show up in My
    Computer. This means I cannot use it. Any suggestions please.

    Is the drive partitioned and formatted?

    If not if using XP go to disk management and partition the drive.
