    bought new HD+ext.enclosure, but cant see it

    sorry if this is a newbie question

    although ive been using computers for recording audio for a long time, ive never done this particular task before:

    i just bought a external firewire enclosure (3.5") and a drive (IDE) to put in it.

    i installed the drive into the enclosure, plugged it into the machine as well as AC

    and when i turned it on, the device installed, but i cant see it anywhere (its not in "my computer") so i cant format the drive.

    i tried "add new device" in control panel, but it just sais its installed properly however like i said, i cant see it anywhere...

    thanx
