    I recently purchased a cp technologies hard drive enclosure p/n cp-ue-308 and installed a seagate st36811a hard drive in it. The hard drive worked when it was taken out of a dell desktop. Problem is that the hard drive shows up in the device manager but does not show up as a separate drive under Windows Explorer. The newer computer that the enclosure is running on has XP. I've attached the device and disk manager screen captures.

    What is the drive jumpered as?

    I have seen similar issues when the drive inside the enclosure was not set as Master, however this can vary with enclosure firmware.

    Well, it's probably time to connect it as a secondary drive on the desktop directly, since it appears that the partition isn't properly recognized. It may be something to do with the USB enclosure.

    Did you install the driver for the unit?

    You don't need any drivers for USB mass storage for ME/2K/XP.

    The factory technical help dept was only able to tell me that the XP requires no drivers for the enclosure. The enclosure does have a power adapter.

    How do I install it as a secondary drive? I just want to be able to get information off of it and use it to back up files. Could you elaborate on what you mean? Thanks.

    They're obviously for W98SE, since you REALLY don't need them for later versions of Windows.
    Like I said. ;)
