Hard drive external enclosure problem....

  sorefingers 12:10 30 Jan 03

I have a firewire external enclosure with a 60gb hdd, which I have not had connected for some months...now when I connect it is not shown in My Computer. The taskbar icon shows it has a connection and when I click, it opens the unplug hardware window with the yellow exclamation mark on it!!
The unit worked fine previously, can anyone explain what the problem may be?

Thanks for any help!

Are you running XP?

If so, you may need to right-click My Computer, choose Manage > Disk Management, and right-click the Firewire drive.

If that doesn't work, report back what Device Manager says about the drive, or the Firewire controller if the drive is not present.
