I have installed a Bullet external USB 2.0 hard drive , but i cant write to it , and it wont show up in My Computer , so i cant install anything on the drive.

It is found using partition magic , and i formatted it from within Partition magic .
It shows in device manager , but says its working properly.

How do i get it to show on my system with all my other drives so i can use it ?????

Partition magic shows this WD 20 gig as having a 7.8 Mb primary , 18.6 Gb extended , >18.6 Gb logical , whatever all that means

I am using windoze 2000 SP3
Gigabyte GA 7N400 pro2
WD 80 drives in RAID 0

Go to your BIOS and make sure that your system is set up for PnP. Should be in the advanced settings. While you are there, check to see if the BIOS reconizes the HD.
