Hi, I have WD 1TB Elements SE. When I checked the usage space on the partition after I plug in the drive, it shows a total capacity as 1,000,200,990,720 bytes (931 GB) and it shows 921,753,505,792 bytes...

If you have a 32bit system, it is expected to have miscalculations, a 32 bits can only go up to 4Gb for calculations (that is, 2^32 = 4'294'967'296 bytes) a 64bit system can make calculations to 2^64 bytes this is also why you couldn't copy a file larger than 4Gb in a 32bit operating system...
So, if you are running a 32bit OS, you should expect a discrepancy for the total space of the Hard Drive and the amount it shows (that's the 93Gb you are missing as total capacity).
Another reason why it can show you incorrect calculations are damaged sectors on the hard drive it-self. These will present themselves either as occupied memory or missing memory.
So, you should expect some miss calculations and you can expect some damaged sectors on the hard disk (a external drive spins on and off too often, eventually damaging sectors... its a problem of physical drives).
In the end, your disk might be fragmented, so run a disk analysis and a defragmentation on the disk so it can recalculate.
A note: A disk is like a shelve, you put things where there is space, if you remove things, that space will be open, and if you want to put something there it has to be the exact size or small enough to fit there. This effect, when things are small enough leaves blank spaces unusable, consuming space on the hard drive and making the access of files slower, this is fragmentation. In order to expand your disk life expectancy you should run defragmentations...
To run a defragmentation, go to START, write "Disk Defragmenter", choose your disk and run and analysis and defragmentation.

Drive only reports 56gb to partition - missing 100gb! How do I access the remaining space?

Click Start
Right-mouse click "My Computer".
Click "Manage".
Expand the "Storage" part of the tree.
Click "Disk Management".
View the diagram for your disk-drive.
Does it show the 56GB partition, followed by 100GB of "unallocated" space,
or does it show one (approximately) 160GB partition?

If the former, backup all the files in the partition (copy to an external disk-drive, or copied to DVD-recordable disks, or to another computer).
Then, use "Disk Management" to delete that "small" partition, and to define a new partition that "spans" the entire volume, and to initialize the partition.
Then, copy the "saved" files back onto the drive.

Cannot access hard drive after putting in external box

First, retrace your steps.
Make sure that the hard drive in the ext. casing is set to Drive 0 or master. If it is a Western Digital, take off any jumpers. If it Maxtor or Seagate it needs a jumper on the master pins. The legend on the hard drive will show you where.
Then, make sure that the IDE cable is on correctly. Or like many enclosures, you have to push the hard drive onto the connector.
When you power the unit up, listen to the hard drive and hear if it is spinning up.
Then see if it works.
I would also try a different USB port.
Did the enclosure include an AC power source? If not , the USB may not have enough power to run the unit.
If it still shows as an unknown unit, I would set it up as a secondary internally on your new PC to see if it is in fact the hard drive that is bad.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I am confused as to what the drive is. Are you talking about the hard drive (stores data), optical drive (reads and writes data on a disc). Please update your post.
