Hopefully someone can help with this issue, my external HD doesn't show up under "my computer", it is hooked up to the pc via usb

Anyone know how to make this show up?

It should show up automatically. Some Vantec units had a faulty power supply that caused recognition problems. It could also be the case, cable or drive. I've seen issues with older cases and newer very large (2GB) drives.

Does it work on other computers (i.e. you've used it before) or is it a fresh drive just purchased/installed in the enclosure?

Glad you found it.

I have 3 Vantec enclosure, the 2 bay MX with Raid.
2 or the 3 had the circuit board with the LED's upside down so the light and power didn't match.

Nice cases, but poor quality control.
