    Hi! I have a USB 2 external drive enclosure that I put my old har
    drive into that my Dell XP is not picking up. Wondering if there i
    a special order to plug in and then turn on. I think I have trie
    every option but may have missed one. Went into disk management a
    was suggested by the manufacter and could not find it listed ther
    either. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!!

    Did you set the drive to master from cable select? Some of the enclosures i
    have used require that.

    Does the drive appear in Device Manager?
    Does the icon to disconnect the drive appear in the tray?
