    I have a Lacie 160 GB HDD and recently I was converting to Mac (which is a whole other story) and I was going to use it on my Mac. Anyway, needless to say I have since converted back to PC but my HDD is not recognizable by my OS (XP Pro). I checked in the device manager and it said that it was working properly but I cannot find the HDD on my computer anywhere. Any suggestions?
    Thank you.

    Assuming XP. Rightclick on my computer, click on manage. Click on Disk management and all your drives will show up. Find the right one , right click and format. Put check mark in the box for quick format.

    That's the thing though, it is not showing up in Disk Management.

    If it was set up under mac os you will probably have to use fdisk and delete non-dos partition. Then create a new partition.
