I recently reformated my computer. I have Vista 32 bit which is what i was using before as well. After the rinstall i could not see 3 of my external (usb ) drives. If i take these drives out of the enclosure and connect them directly to the pc via IDE they show up. Any idea on how to make them work in the usb mode again? thanks in advance for any help
