    I just bought a brand new WD Scorpio WD1600BEVE 2.5-inch EIDE Hard Drive (Here) and a Sumvision Usb 2.0 Wxte-e 844 2.5" Enclosure for it to go into.

    However when I plug it into my laptop (both cables into two different use ports). It recognises it and installs drivers. It doesn't show up in device list, so I went to device manager and it was functioning correctly, I then went to hard disk management and it was not initialised or formatted. Howver I cannot initialise (no button appears on right click), and I cannot format as this is greyed out.

    Please help me! :p
    Thank you,
