I just bought a Compusa brand external harddrive enclosure for my Seagate 200GB harddrive (3.5). For some reason my iBook G4 won't recognize it at all. I should be able to just plug it in and it should show up I believe... any ideas?

Open up disk utility and see if it is showing up there. You probably have to format the disk
