You haven't given us much to go on, what computer do you have, is this a laptop or desktop, what make and model is it ?

You say you've just added the external drive, have you clicked on the start orb and looked under Computer ?

Please post back with more details to help the experts give you the help you need, plus if you could fill out your System Specs that would help as well don't forget we can't see what you have.
