    Just installed Windows XP on my mac pro with one BSOD during install but then everything turned out to be fine. Everything runs fine except that I cannot get windows to recognize a external firewire HD even with it running MacDrive for XP. When I plug it in, the little "new hardware" icon pops up but it(the drive) never shows up in "My Computer" as a drive. Any ideas on this one??

    Have you tried visiting the ext. hd manufacturers website and searching for XP drivers and installing them yourself?
