Hard Drive

I’ve just installed a second hard drive, a 250 GB Seagate Barracuda.

My BIOS recognises it and when I first booted up in to Windows XP it recognised it and installed the drivers etc. But, when I open up My Computer or Explorer the drive is not there.

Both of my Hard Drives jumpers are on Cable Select, I’m assuming theres nothing wrong with that as the drives been detected as Slave in the BIOS.

Please help.

Have you gone in and formatted the drive yet? If you are using Windows XP, you need to go into Administrative Tools/Disk Management, and format the drive before you can use it.

No, but thanks for the info, that sorted it.
