Hi!

I know you have probably answered this question a thousand times however I have read a thousand replies and not sure if I still know what to do.

Problem:::::
I bought my son another hard drive Seagate 320 gig to be a slave to his his comp of a mere 80 gig samsung. ( he has loads of stuff he doesnt want to reinstall on this one . )

He says the jumpers are right for master/ slave and the bios picks it us as well as hardware list and says that it is working properly , however it does not pick it up as an icon in my computer so that he can actually use it.

Please help as he only has a few gig left on the smaller drive .
Thankyou in advance
Sharon

Hi again
Through your directions for formatting we finally worked it out and partitioned the drive first and now it works like a charm
thanks so so much from both my son and I
