i have a new WD 2TB hard drive that I'm putting into a MediaSonic USB3.0 external enclosure. After attaching the hard drive, I went into Computer Management to initialize the disk. When I tried to do that, I get an error that pops up from the Virtual Disk Manager that says, "The device is not ready".
I've tried detaching and re-attaching the drive and rebooting my HTPC, but no luck.... Any ideas? Do I have to initialize it with a SATA cable on the motherboard first before putting it in the enclosure?
