Johnwill-- A few weeks ago you told me about the USB 2.0 HD enclosure. I remember you said you were running one (or two). I have a problem, I think. After installing the USB 2.0 PCI card and then the enclosure, I wanted to move some files from the USB drive to C:. When I right clicked on the files and went to "Send to" there was no option to send to C:, only to send to the USB drive where the file was already located. Well, I moved those files a different way, so that's okay. I formatted the USB drive just now, and noticed in Disk Manager that my C: drive as well as the USB drive are listed as Primary. The C: is drive 0, and the USB is drive 1. Is this how it should be? It seems as though the USB HD has taken over.

I believe it was you who said the USB 2.0 drive would be fast. Man, it is! Much faster than I expected. Would appreciate any help/advice you can give me. There doesn't seem to be many people on the forums using this.

I'll owe you at least a twelve of your favorite brew. I'll deliver as soon as Bill Gates releases Windows Transport.

There won't be any option to send to C: but you can create one easily enough. Go to Windows Explorer and navigate to the Send To folder and you can create a Send To shortcut for any drive letter you want.

The way your drives are showing up in disk Manager is normal....0 being the first drive and 1 being the second drive. If you were to add another drive it would be labeled as 2. Everything is working the way it should.

Thanks a lot, Rockn. I've never added a hard drive before, much less a USB hookup. Don't understand why the C: option isn't there, but I'll add it. Slowly getting this thing figured out, or at least getting familiar with it. Thanks again.
