Hey guys,

I've just installed a 320gig HD as a secondary drive to store my movies. It's a SATA and everything is recognized in BIOS. My first Hard-drive is a 160gig WD SATA. When i first started up windows, it said found new WD3200*** Hardware... and that was it.

When I go into 'My Computer', It isn't there. Does anyone know why it's not in my computer?

Thanks in advance,
Brandon.

Btw, it does come up in Device Manager in control panel. I guess Windows recognizes it but it doesn't show up in My computer.

Does your computer have SP2 installed?

Yeh it does have SP2.

It is because I have to format the harddrive for it to appear in 'My Computer?'
