External IDE HDD Not Recognized - Please Help

Hi, I have a Hitachi Deskstar 160 GB (IDE) hard drive that is enclosed in an Ultra external hard drive enclosure. So I pug it in, connect it via USB, and turn it on. It comes up in "Device Manager", but not in "My Computer". So I search around, trying to fix the problem, and everyone says that it needs to be activated under "Disk Management". Well the problem is that it doesn't even show up in "Disk Management". I try it in other computers (I have VISTA, and I tried it in an XP), but it still has the same problem. So if someone could help me with this problem, that would be awesome. Thanks.
