I can't find the external hard disk in "My computer"

This is Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. System is working fine so far. Recently I bought a new HITACHI 2.5'' external hard disk and have used it on few computers, its working fine. But when am connecting it to this computer, I can see it as “USB mass storage device” in safely remove hardware icon but it is not visible in My Computers.

Before I post the problem here I again checked it in my laptop and its still working good. So what could be the problem with my system? Any help or idea? Thank you in advance.
