    Question for everyone.

    I have a new LaCie 1TB external FW400 HD connected to my iMac core duo, running boot camp and XP SP3. For some reason, in My Computer, the HD is not recognized, even though the drive is shown as connected in the device manager and down in the task bar as being a drive to "safely remove." I have a partition on the drive formatted to FAT32 that I had hoped to use as a place to back up XP, but I even the Lacie 1-click back up software won't see it. The boot camp partition is also formatted to FAT32. Any ideas as to why this is happening and what I might do to fix it?

    Sounds like a driver issue. Try reinstalling BootCamp drivers?
