    Default Help!! Formatting a Harddrive

    Hi can any IT experts out there help??

    I just bought a hard disk (unformatted) and a USB external HD casing. Now I need to format it.. how do I do it?? I know this is stupid.. but I am an IT idiot.
    I am using XP. The USB icon does appear when I 'ON' the external drive, but it doesn't appear any drive in the explore.... Help!!!

    Go to Administrative Tools -> Disk Management, you'll see the drive space there, right click, select format, after finishing, it will assign a drive letter to the drive

    Hope it helps.
