    external hard drive thingy


    i'm using XP and i just bought an 80gig hardrive and put it in a portable external enclosure that uses USB to connect. when i plug it in, it shows up in my taskbar, and everything indicates it is working, except i have now idea how to access it. no new drive shows up in 'my computer' like it would if you plugged in a portable zip drive or something. how how i get to the damn thing to use it?
    thanks

    Do you need to partition and format the HD before putting into the usb cage?

    Just a thought....
