WD Greens dosn't show in windows 8

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently bought 2 WD Green 3TB. I have connected them to the computer and they show up in BIOS, but not in Disk Manager, Device Manager or Intel Rapid Storage Tech. I've checked the SATA cables, reseated them and they still dont work. Anybody have any ideas? I'm finding it hard to believe that both HDDs are DOA.

you need to make sure you have the latest drivers to enable the full 3T of storage and also you need to go into disk managment and activate it as such

Which drivers would that be? I have the EVGA Stinger motherboard and there isn't any driver for storage listed.

Thanks for the offer, but I just don't feel safe with remote help.

well the option is there, i will remote on to your pc and try and solve it for you. if you are not sure just pull the plug of the network cable... simples and kill temaviewer... to make it even better do the quicksupport so when i disconnect it uninstalles itself.

and i got better things to do thatn put stuff or take stuff off your pc
