I have recently put together my computer and one of the hard drives simply isn't showing up in "My Computer" however it is seen in the Device Manager. I'm running Windows XP anyone have any ideas as to how to get my 70 gig drive rollin?

Try Right-Clicking the My Computer Icon then clicking Manage then click Drive Management and right-click on the drive that isn't seen and click Format.

If it was a new hard drive it will need to have a partition setup on it and formatting with the desired file system.

Check this MS KB article for details.
