I have a Seagate 2.5" Laptop SATA HD. I bought a external enclosure for it. When I hook up the USB2 cable to it, Windows makes that noise of a USB cable being hooked up, and the icon shows up in the taskbar. But, when I go to My Computer, the drive icon isn't there. I'm running XP Pro SP2. My specs are in my sig. Thanx

Goto administrative tools --> Computer management --> disk management and check the status of your disk there. Report what you see there.
You can partition, format the disk from DMng, but's it's better you tell us what you see there.
Also, it's possible that the HDD is not correctly connected and only your external rack is detected, but the HDD in it is not. Make sure the HDD is correctly mounted.
