How was this drive partitioned and formatted?
System is : Dell Dimension 8100; Windows XP Pro/w SP3
Issue: I have a Maxtor, DiamondMax 40GB hard drive in an enclosure with its own power and with a usb 2 cable. It is set as a master drive (I've tried it as a slave as well but it will not set up). My computer lists it in the Hardware Manager but no drive letter is assigned.
I have attempted to assign a letter but the option is not made available. Under Computer Management/Disk manager the device is listed without a drive letter. Other drives have letters and will show the option of "Change drive letter and paths"(when I right click one of the volumes listed) but will not show this option for the external drive mentioned. Your assistance is appreciated.
