hard drive not beening recignozed Tags: Hard Drives Western Digital Linux Storage Last response: June 26, 2004 2:55 AM in Storage Share xxsk8er101xx June 25, 2004 4:48:25 PM I installed Linux (Mandrake 9.1) on this drive. The drive is a western digital 80GB and 8MB cache 7200RPM's. I want to format the drive and use it as an external drive. Now for someone reason windows won't even see the drive. I can understand that it can see the drive itself but not be able to to see the contents. But to not soo the drive at all is mind bogling. The drive works i know it does. So I am wondering what it is i have to do to get windows to see the drive whoch mandrake linux 9.1 resides. I would do a search but i have no clue on what to search for. Thanks! <A HREF="http://www.anandtech.com/mysystemrig.html?id=9933" target="_new"> My Rig </A> More about : hard drive beening recignozed xxsk8er101xx June 25, 2004 6:12:13 PM Ok i got it. I feel slightly retarded though because i think if i would have just looked at the disk management tool in windows xp i would have found it there and just deleted the partitions with that but delpart worked just fine. oh well thanks! <A HREF="http://www.anandtech.com/mysystemrig.html?id=9933" target="_new"> My Rig </A> sjonnie June 25, 2004 7:01:40 PM No problem, any time. <A HREF="http://www.anandtech.com/myanandtech.html?member=114979" target="_new">My PCs</A> :cool: Can't find your answer ?
