Problems with drive...

I tried to hook up another hard drive today, and the hookup went fine, and
the drive appeared as Drive F. When I tried to access the drive, it says Not
Able to Access. I get the same thing when I hook up my camera, which Windows
sees as a removable drive. Anyone have any suggestions?

Is it a IDE or USB connection? Try rt clicking MyComputer>select
Manage>Disk Management>See if it shows up there
and if yes, try to assign it a drive letter. Is the drive partitioned and
formatted?
