I have an 80Gig Maxtor HD I want to use with a new usb external enclosure. The drive is recognized when installed as an additional drive in my computer. Can I use the device manager to format it so it will be recognized when connected as an external drive? Or is there another process that is needed for formatting.

Thanks, Al:)

Right-click Computer, Manage, Disk Management. Right-clcik the drive and remove all partitions so all the space is unallocated. Create partitions the sizes you want and format. Change drive letters, if you want.
