Windows 2000 server, fully service packed and also hotfixed. When adding a
external 300 gigabyte USB hard drive, using Disk Management to partition and
format NTFS, Drive letters assigned and status is healthy the drive is NOT
showing up in My Computer nor can it be accessed by drive letter.

Any clues am I missing anything? Tried uninstall and letting it find it
again and as stated Disk Manger shows it as ok but no appearance in My
Computer (also no drive letter conflicts)

TIA
Dirk-Thomas
