New HDD

Hey all. I just installed a new HDD, and when i go to the Control Panel it says its working fine. But if i go to My Computer, its not there! When i say i installed it, i really do just mean i set it as a slave, and plugged it all in.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Thanks

Re: New HDD

start->settings->control panel->Administrative Tools->Computer Management

You should go to the storage->disk management tab and select the new hard drive (assuming it turns up) there should be a format or enable or something in there and you'll be set.

I assume you have win xp? if not it may or may not be the same process.

Re: New HDD
