New WD Black 1TB drive problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just installed the WD Black 1TB Sata3 drive.


Problem is that its not recognized in the "my computer" under drives.


The BIOS sees it and Device Manager sees it but I cant seem to use it.

Any ideas on whats wrong?


Edit: I think I fixed it. Had to go into Computer Management and Initialize it and Format it.

Have you initialised the hard driver through Computer management?

Start>settings>CP>Admin tools> Computer management>Disk Management

Ahh... you read my mind
