Hey Guys!
Happy Easter!


I just installed Leopard on my mini and I didnt think it would be anything to exciting, but WOW I love it!
Anyways, I installed Vista through Bootcamp just to see how well it works and there are a few programs I could use in Windows, but I plugged my external drive in with all sorts of program installers and it doesnt pop up in "My Computer" but it shows that it is connected in Device Manager and the lower right hand corner.


Any suggestions?

If your external drive is HFS+ formatted (i.e. formatted for Mac) it won't be available to be used within Windows without either reformatting to FAT32 (the only format both Win and OS X can read & write to natively), or using some third party software like HFSExplorer (free) or MacDrive ($49).

If your drive isn't HFS+, there may be some other issue.
