Question about Western Digital 320GB MyBook External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Right-click My Computer, choose Manage, then click on Disk Management. If you are prompted about Initialize and Convert, you don't need to Convert, but you DO need to Initialize the disk.
Once the disk is initialized the OS can use it, but you will still need to create a partition and format it. Find the next disk in the list on the bottom right and right-click the box (it'll say Disk 1 or something like that) and choose New Partition or New Volume to create a new partition or volume -- partitions are for Basic disks, volumes are for Dynamic disks - usually I use Basic disk.
Hit F1 while in Disk Management for more help.
