I have just set up a new 40gb hard drive in an external hard drive case and connected to my PC via a USB2 port (I am running Win ME) and the drive does not show in 'My Computer' or 'Explorer' so I cannot format the drive. The hard disk case light is lit and the drive is listed in the 'eject or unplug hardware' task bar icon. The new hard drive has jumpers set to 'Master'. Can anyone help me.

Cheers!

i never used windows ME, but if it has "administrative tools" in the control panel, click that and use disk management to create a partition and format drive.
