... but not USB
Authored by: shacker on Nov 23, '01 02:13:18PM

Unfortunately this does not work with external USB drive enclosures. Or at least mine doesn't show up as a drive in the Disk Utility (regardless the filesystem type). If anyone knows how to get OSX to recognize one of these, please post!

USB should work

You have to wait two or three full minutes before it will appear. This is NOT an exageration. That's how long it takes. Just plug in the USB drive and wait :)

I too experience this long recognition time, for me it is around 5 minutes. I am using the MacAlly USB enclosure. Either way this is something Apple really needs to work on.
