External Drives won' mount

Specs: XP home
I am having trouble getting an Xp laptop to recognize external drives. I connected a usb thumb drive, an 500gb external drive, and an iphone and all three devices won't mount. XP will pop up a message saying that a new device was connected, it recognizes what type of a device it is (external hd, iphone, etc) but the drive never appears on My Computer, any ideas? help is appreciated.

Are they formatted already? Goto the control panel then administrative tools and see if they show up in Computer management, that's a good start.
