    I just bought a 320Gb WD SATA HDD and an external hard drive case.

    I've set up the 2 together correctly (in so far as i can see), but the finder won't recognise them. The disk utility opens up recognising it, but not the finder:confused:

    Any help would be much appreciated as I have leopard waiting:p

    It's alright, I found it...

    You partition the hard drive in disk utility with 1 partition

    Hmm, I've got my USB 320GB WD My Book partitioned and it shows up as two drives. I suppose it's different with SATA?
