I have XP and recently purchased a AcomData USB external hard drive. I can make backups to the external drive but (contrary to what I was told) I cannot clone my C: or image it to the external drive. I have used Norton Ghost, Acronis True Image and Power Quest. Any help? Thanks.

I made the ghost boot disk but the program does not "see" the
external drive letter. Will not recognize it.
