Trouble accessing external HD through firewire (XP)
by TheChief - 2/24/05 9:44 AM
I just got an 80GB Hitachi external hard drive in an Ultra enclosure, and I can't seem to access it with Win XP using firewire. My Inspiron 8200 laptop is a few years old, so no USB 2.0. Instead, I use a PC card with firewire ports to connect to the HD. The computer recognizes the device and it pops up as a drive in the device manager, but it doesn't display an accessible icon in My Computer. Does someone know a way that I can get into this thing?
