Got a problem with an External Hard Drive that I can't see in Windows Explorer.


- It's running off a USB Hub, but that's not the problem as other devices are connected and working fine.


- I've checked 'Device Manager' and the device is also listed under 'Disk Drives' and is functioning correctly.


- The BIOS also recognises the device as a Removable Disk Drive but I can't see it in Windows :wacko:




Any ideas ? :(

If you're running XP, you need to "initialise" the disk before XP will see it. Go to the partitions section of disk managment and right click the drive to initiailise it.

Just out of interest, can you remember how you sorted out your problem ?



I switched one thing to letter q or something, then I could see the missing one with the same letter q previously had, changed that to what I wanted it to and then changed q back to what it was.


Or something like that. It was a while ago.
