    Default External HDD problem ... help needed!

    Hi people,

    Just got a 1TB HDD and decided to use it as an external HD. I managed to plug it into my system using an external 3.5" HD enclosure but I don't seem to be able to access the drive at all!

    Please advise and TIA!

    Hi Yoh, appreciate the reply.

    Yes, Device Manager detects the HDD; I guess I can't access it because the drive has not been formatted ... please advise.

    Should be easy. Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management. Right click on the drive that's yet to be initialized, format it!

    Follow the sequence.
