    Default help mi with my hardisk

    recently bought an external hardisk enclosure
    http://www.dtk.com.tw/product/enclosure/den351.html

    and also bought a new hardisk Maxtor 40GB ATA133 5400rpm 2mb buffer...

    but when i put them together and set the hardisk to master pin..
    windows is able to detect the hardisk [in the taskbar] but when u go into my computer..
    no new drive is found....

    the enclosure is usb2.0 and it is back ward compatible..
    tried with my old hardisk ATA100 and it works..

    anyone can help here??

    What OS are you using? winxp and win2000 will be pretty straightforward.
    But if you are using win98, u need to boot from a diskette or go into DOS mode and run fdisk. But since u are using USB, dos mode might not able to detect. Then, you need to use partition magic.
    Objection !!!
