How do i get access to this drive to do a format

I have a seagate freeagent desk 1t that I was using on a dishnetwork 722k receiver that I want to use on my xp media center. it does not show up on my computer on hard disk drives, when I check in device manager, under disk drives it lists the drive (as Seagate) and that “This device is working properly.” I want to reformat … how do I get access to it ?
thanks… bill :confused:

Right-click on My Computer then Manage…, Storage->Disk Management. If it doesn’t show up there then you’ve a got a driver (or some other) problem.



thanks for your help…

Remove it from the cover and connect it internally to your computer to access it.
