    Well Schwan my problem is beyond that....Well the external hard disc is recognised in the disk management section I am able to partition it and departition it also - it does show up there (in disk management)....but it does not show up on "My computer" the error message is that ..."Pnp drivers" not found....it wants to search the internet and when I allow that it turns up without a driver....

    Due to it not showing up in the my computer I am unable to transfer any files to the external hard disc......

Hi, you might need to partition & format the drive. Its pretty easy. Just get into control panel (classic view), open administrator tools, and computer management. in the computer management window, there will be a "tree view" on the left, you should see disk management. Once you are in the "disk management" section, you should see your external drive there, and can partition/format it by right clicking on it. Most external drives should come preformatted, and if it doesnt appear in the disk management section it may need some sort of driver disk or oem software.

Try updating your Mainboard USB or Chipset drivers. USB 2.0 driver issues can cause this problem.

Hope this helps!

GO TO GEEKS.COM AND PURCHASE A USB TO IDE INTERFACE. THEN TAKE YOUR HARD DRIVE OUT OF THE ENCLOSURE AND HOOK YOUR DRIVE TO THE CABLE AND HOOK UP THE POWER ADAPTER THAT COMES WITH IT. THE PROBLEM IS IN YOUR EXTERNAL DRIVES INTERFACE. IF YOU CANNOT SEE YOUR DRIVE WITH THE USB INTERFACE; THEN YOU HAVE A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THE DRIVE.
