I just installed a SATA hard drive. It is working properly. Why can't I access it?

I just installed a SATA hard drive in my computer. The new drive is listed on the startup screen with my other SATA drive and I ran ‘Add Hardware’ from the control panel and it told me the device was working properly. When I open My Computer I can’t find it. Any suggestions?

I suspect it will need partitioning and formatting.


Just make sure you apply the method to the right drive (i.e. not your existing one, on which your OS is installed)

Wow thanks. That has to set a record for the quickest answer. I figured it was something pretty elemetary. It’s just been too long since I messed around inside my computer case.

Mangetout your just too fast for me today. You didn’t leave an easy tech support questions. :slight_smile:
