Hi, I recently purchased two 320gb SATA hard drives (by seagate) and two external cases (venus ds3) that can connect to the PC by both SATA and USB. I got them to back up my pictures. I connected them to the pc with the supplied USB cable and windows recognizes that the drives are there, but the problem is that they don't appear under "my computers" and I don't know how to acess and format/partition the drives for use, whether I need something else to run them (I don't know if I need a sata controller to connect them via USB, or if my computer has one) or if there is something wrong with the drives/cases. I have a fairly new PC as well, just had it for 4 months and just to give an idea it's got 1gb memory, athlon 64, media center, 250gb hd. The external enclosures came with cd/instruction for installing a driver for windows 98 and that's about all the documentation that I recieved.
Thanks for any help/pointers anyone can give.
