LaCie 320GB BigDisk not visible in Win. explorer
Posted on 2004-10-20
I recently purchased a LaCie 320GB BigDisk triple interface for use with winXP. Was able to create a partition and format as NTFS with no problem. Assigned it as N:. I can see it and explore it from the Disk Manager but if I click on 'my computer' or start Windows explorer the drive is not listed. I discovered that it is listed under 'my network places'.
Does anyone have a suggestion about how to get the drive to appear as just another hard disk? I also have a Maxtor 120GB USB drive and it is shown correctly as drive M: so my computer can recognize USB drives.
I would appreciate any suggestions. I can access the drive by exploring starting with the Disk Manager but that is not very convenient for routine use.
