I have a Dell Dimension XPS 1500 (pretty old) with a maxtor 20gb hard drive. This computer got pretty messed up so i decided to do some fixin. I bought a samsung 80gb hard drive. I installed the hard drive (i added it along with the maxtor, i didnt replace it). The computer detected the hard drive but when i go to my computer, the hard drive doesn't show up next to local disk (c:). When i click on the properties of local disk (c:) and click on the hardware tab, the samsung hard drive shows. The computer detected it but it doesnt seem to show up on my computer. What should i do?
