since i don't want to use the enclosure anymore…i popped it in my pc and it does't see it. do i need to do something to the drive before windows can see it? i got everything off of it already so i just want to format it to use with my server.
The drive is formatted for a linux operating system, so if you use Windows use a partition editor to reformat to NTFS (ie. partition magic or a free alternative.. it's been a while since I've done it on Windows).
If you use Linux, then you need to mount the drive manually. Specify ext3 at mount to get it to be recognised properly.
Any chance I could get the enclosure off you? I'll pay shipping if it is reasonable.
thanks for the reply make me an offer for the enclosure + actual shipping from NC 27407 i was gonna put it on ebay anyway, the drive didn't show up in the Bios screen so i didn't even try to see it anywhere else…is that normal.
I wouldn't have thought that the format would matter to the bios (although I may be wrong, my computer doesn't use bios).
