I need help. I have no idea what to do. I want to pull my hair out.....
I got a Maxtor external hard drive. The only instructions is... plug it in
and restart the computer. I did and nothing... and tried different ways. I
go under devicemanager and I see it there and it says it is working fine but
It does not show up in my computer and I have no idea how to use it...
Please Help....
Oh.. and I have XP a brand new computer....
Thank you and God Bless!

Right click My Computer, select Manage then Disk Management. You can
format it there and assign a drive letter.
