In order to answer that question, you need to supply configuration information.

Is this drive in the linux box? If it is on the linux system, how is it connected? ( IDE, SCSI, external USB ).

Is this drive on a windoze only system? How are you connected to this system?

What file system is on the drive? ( fat 32 or ntfs ).

How do you want to use it? ( Read only or read and write ).

Post back, and we can provide some direction.
