ATA Hard Drives
Old machine with XP Pro installed, with two IDE hard drives, both set up with
NTFS file system, and they worked fine in XP. New machine does not have any
IDE ports only SATA, and to use one of old IDE hard drives I bought a caddie
with USB connection.

Put IDE hard drive in caddie, Vista said device manager installed, but in
"my computer" the drive is not there. In device manager the drive is shown
under the main hard drive, and says it is working properly. In disk
management the drive is shown, but it does not have a drive letter and the
top half of the screen, under file type there is nothing saying it is NTFS.
Any suggestions how I can access this drive?

I did the exact same thing 2 weeks ago, and the drive appeared as normal
after the 3rd boot. Can't explain why.
