    Hi, does anyone know how to get a Windows platform to read and write to a sata external drive? I have a backup 500gb 2.5" drive in an external case and windows won't recognize it's existence. Have tried it on four machines, 3 with XP and one with Vista and they don't pick up that it exists. The drive is not faulty as it works fine on my Mac.

    Any help would be grateful, thank you.
