install the external drive by using the USB cable .

start > right click " My Computer" > select explore >

locate the external drive...(should be listed as the last letter or by name of external drive)

Right click the Icon and select format
then select the NTFS as the file system

and you should be fine.

Change Is Good

I appreciate yr reply..but the xt. HD doesnt show up in any form when I go to "my computer>explore>...
BUT it does show in "Control Panel".>Add hardware.... it is listed there and says it is installed and functioning.
I tried going to "my pictures" to send a pic. to the xthd, ..but the xthd doesnt show up here or anywhere except as above in control panel.any other suggestions?
