I've tried everything.  There don't seem to be any drivers for Vantec NexStar dual drive dock, for which I have a 500GB Seagate drive installed.  It's plugged in properly, actually "installs" it, but it won't show up in My Computer so I can start transferring files to it.  I've tried numerous things, to no avail.  Help!!

Does it show up in Computer Management?  See http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_management.htm

You said you've put a 500 Gb drive in it but is this formatted or not?

You win, dbrunton!  LOL.  Actually, I just figured it out, just finished doing it.  You are correct, I had to go into Computer Management, then Disk Management, and then I partitioned the drive, and formatted it.  Thanks!!
