Bought myself a 500GB HDD to put in my Caddy to use as a backup drive, however it never worked. I assumed it was busted so bought myself a replacement 1TB drive. This doesn't work either?? A 5 year old 250GB drive does work however. By 'work' I mean the new drives don't show up in My Computer. The power light comes on the caddy and the disc spins up, then stops.
Could it be due to the two new drives needing to be formatted? How can I do this without hard-wiring them into a pc? (my PC is in pieces currently while I rebuild it so this option is ruled out...)
They are all SATA drives, connected to the computer my means of a USB2 connection.
