    I have put an hard drive into a hard drive enclosure. I double checked this was working by plugging it in as a slave in my pc. It showed up and I formatted it to ntfs. It does not show up in my computer only in device manager as a usb mass storage device, it says that this device is working properly. Its also plugged in by usb to the rear of my pc.
    Please help otherwise this is going in the bin:eek:
