Hard Drive not Showing Up in My Computer

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to install a secondary HD and it doesn't show up in My Computer. In Disk Management it only shows up as something called "Disk 0" and there aren't many options to work with. I don't know what to do. Also, I never got a popup saying that a new disk had been installed.

Does anybody know what's wrong?

Oh wait, that looks like it needs to be formatted to NTFS. Sorry was on a phone before couldn't see image. You should be able to right click, then select New volume then a window will come up select next and follow the steps from there.

If that's a brand new drive... yes, it's standard that they come uninitialized. You need to right-click the big black area and create a new "Simple Volume" (Formatted to NTFS - default options are fine)

You can quick format it if you wish, but a full format is usually better on brand new drives, since it does a check for bad sectors. On a 1TB drive it will probably take a few hours.
