    Just bought a new 120GB samsung hd 2.5" and an ngear enclosure for it. I plug it into my mpb, but it doesn't appear anywhere. Doesn't appear on my desktop (which makes sense since it hasn't been formatted) but it also doesn't appear in dis utility. There are numerous people that have had no problem getting this enclosure to work with their PCs. It says it works with a mac in the manual, but doesn't include any instructions for it.

    Any ideas?

    Ah nevermind, turns out it was just a power problem. Needed to find the power cord for my usb hub in order to get enough juice to the HD.
