hey fellows,
I just bought a 200GB hard drive which I plan on using as my secondary hard drive. It's all connected (slave connections), my BIOS recognizes it, when I right click on my computer and go to device manager, I see it listed there as well...BUT I can't see it in the my computer folder. I only see my primary hard drive.
Any help?

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. I suspect you need to fomat the drive. Go to start, my computer, right click manage, disk managment. The drive should show up there. You need to right click on it, partition and format.
