via the diskWizard software. I then partitioned and formatted the new drive (the
slave) per Seagate's instructions, using the disk management Windows software.
The disk management module sees the drive, lists it as healthy and, therefore, it
should be seen by My Computer, but it is not. (The bios lists the disk correctly and
Device Manager also lists the new disk and reported that it is working properly and its use
This disk is not listed in my Computer or Windows explorer (nor my Power Desk, which I use
instead of Windows Explorer). I can copy files to the drive by right clicking on a file that I want
to copy to the new drive, then when the tree comes up, I simply type G:\ for where to copy.
(The primary disk has 4 partitions C thru F, so this disk is G. (My DVD drive is R for "read" and
the CD writer is W for "write".
The only way I can access the data on the G drive is by going to the disk manager, highlighting
the disk, right clicking and explore. I can then pull up the files I copied there.
BTW, in Power Desk and Windows explorer I can right click and use the item "go to Drive" and
when I do, the G drive is listed there, but nothing happens when I click it and hit OK.
I don't know what else to do and it is simply not acceptable to me to leave things this way.
