Incidentally, Device Manager doesn't show drive letters - that's normal.
You only see drive letters in Windows Explorer/My Computer. Try booting in to pure DOS (not a DOS window), then type FDISK and from the menu choose the option see the partition details for that drive, just to confirm that it does have at least one partition. And while your in DOS, log on to that drive and type DIR to see if DOS can access the drive.

It doesn't have a drive letter assigned under DOS either.
The drive functioned perfectly well in another machine underWindows 95 before I put it in this machine. Is it possible it has some sort of drive management software (Western Digital) to allow a large drive under Win 95 that's messing thiings up? Or can the FAT16 vs. FAT 32 be messing things up?
