I have purchased an external hard drive case and installed a second hand 40 GB hard drive. Win XP Home reconizes it as a mass storage drive but it dosn't appear in Explorer.

The hard drive has been formatted (I'm told) but I don't know what file system was used. Where do I Start?

Where do I find Disk Manager, is that different to Device Manager?

I have looked in Device manager which tells me that it is working correctly.

Ah yes!

That says "not Iniallised" and 37.27 GB unallocated. I have now inialised and formatted it.

Thanks very much for your help.
