Hi All, I have just purchased a larger HDD and an external caddy. When I plug everything in my computer beep beeps to say it's plugged in, It then tells me the drivers are loading, and then my USB mass storage is ready for use.
But when I go to my Computer,
It is not there.
I can find drive "C", DVD "D" but NO drive "E" or usb storage ect, So where is it.
I have checked in Control Panel, Device Manager, Disk Drives, and that shows it's there, (Generic External USB DEVICE). On checking properties the disk is called "Disk 1", Type "Unknown", Status " Not Initialized", Partition size "Not Applicible", Capacity "152628 MB" Unallocated, & Reserved space "0 MB"
So it's there somewhere but how can I find it so that I can move everything onto it so that will become my new "C" drive (To replace my current full "C")

Came across this which says INF files may be missing from Installer
step 1! Go into C:\ and create a folder called usbdriver
step 2! Go into C:\WINDOWS\INF and copy the whole contents
step 3! COPY ALL THAT INTO C:\usbdriver
when you are asked to look for the drivert point it to C:\USBDRIVER and click ok.
If you have any luck then Windows has a partition editor built in - Start -type "create and format hard disk partitions"
