Go into [I]Disk Management[/I] and locate the external drive volume. If it's not assigned a drive letter, right-click and assign one. You may also need to use the [I]Import the foreign disk[/I] option.

I have a toshiba satillite laptop and have recently bought an ide
dvd-rw. also i bought a ide-usb cable which includes a power cable. i
have installed nero 6 ultra edition. The dvd will read but not write.
apart from plugging it in i have not changed the settings on the
computer in any way. >>the problem is it is messing up the moue on the
laptop and it will not burn a dvd!

Any help welcome!!
