I just changed my external HD over to a new PC (Windows XP SP2), it seems to install OK and it's listed in the Device Manager as a Western Digital External HD but it's not list in My Computer. I opened up Disk Management so I could assign it a drive letter but it's not even listed. I have two IDE drives, a DVD burner and a DVD ROM in the list.
Is there anything else I could try?
BTW I read on a different site.
"Remove the drive from the external enclosure and install it as a slave drive in your computer- see if you can access it that way"
This was actually for a Western Digital 80gig external USB HD. But could I do it if I get desperate enough?
