Right click on My Computer and select "Manage"
From the computer management screen select "Disk Manager" on the right
Now you should see a list of all your drives. Under the new one you should see 1.7GB under whichever drive letter that drive has partitioned
To the right of that should say unpartitioned space. If this is correct then you should be able to right click this unpartitioned space and select partition. This will allow you to now use that space. You may want to completly format the drive though.
Here is where you can check the jumper setting:
If it is the only thing on the IDE cable then you will want to set it to "master". If it is the second HDD on the IDE cable then you will want it set to slave. If it is on the same IDE cable as a CD drive then it should be set to master.
