how to access data on external hard drive

Have just installed Windows 7 on a dual boot with Windows XP. Can not seem to get to display the material on that external HD. See this HD indicated in Devices and Printers and can click on the properties for this. How do I display the partitions, folders, etc. on this HD as I can in Windows XP???

First, is the drive connected via USB, eSATA or Firewire?

How to access data on external hard drive

I took the suggestions from several posters on another thread. It looks like the internal HD within this external enclosure has quit on me. Fortunately, much of the data is on two other former internal HDs. THANX for your responses!.
