Default external HD USD enclosure


I bought a new HD for my notebook computer and tried to use an external USB enclosure in order to be able to access my old files.

The encolsure didn't work at all - although its lights turned on the computer (both under win98 and XP) didn't even respond to its connection as it should have.

When inside my computer, the drive I used with the external device works fine.

My questions:

1. Does this mean there is a problem with the enclosure, or can there be a different reason?

2. What should happens when a HD with several partitions is put into such an enclosures - will they appear as different drives under windows, or is there reason to expect problems?

Many thanks!
