I am trying to get a drive to show up either in Disk Utility or the desktop and need help.
The drive in question is a 500GB SATA drive from a new DISH network STB. I took out the drive and put it into an external drive enclosure that has SATA connectors inside. So far so good.
But the USB connector on the outside of the enclosure is a male connector just like my eMac (or any Mac). I don't have a USB cable with male connectors on both ends (have never seen one either).
So I have been trying all afternoon to use the ethernet connector on the outside of the enclosure. I have a regular CAT5 cable from it to my ethernet port on my eMac.
I have been fiddling around with the Network and Sharing settings but cannot get anything to show up on the desktop or via the GO menu and Connect to Server in the finder.
Can this be done or do I have to connect it to router first?
Running: eMac 1Ghz OS X 10.4.11
