hi guys i know you have probably come accross this problem loads of times but i have installed a second hard drive on my pc as a slave it is showing up in add hardwere and is saying that the new hard drive is working but its not showing up in my computer.
check the jumper setting on the drive, one should be master the other master with slave or both should be set to cable select and put the master drive at the end of the cable and the slave on the second channel
the reason for this is that windows cannot recognized the HDD basically the file system on the HDD is corrupt and windows cannot decide what type it is,........... AGAIN are you certain that the drive is jumpered properly.
You might have to format the drive for windows to see it
yeah can't see how the drivers on the hdd could be currupt i bought it from p.c world today its a brand new one will re arange the jumpers again had them both on cable have had them on master and slave
thats just hardware detection, all hardware will show up there does not mean its working properly. try load the drive by itself ( set the jumper to master) if the pc boots and tell you cannot find ntdlr then the drive is good. did you get a cd with the drive, boot from the cd and set up the the drive. THE drive has to be formated for the operating system to see it.
I see that you have the same post and Jbennet suggest you use computer management, if the drive show up there you can format it
