2nd HDD problem

  kane_2001 18:20 19 Jul 2007

Have installed a second HDD from my old Pc into my current one, as far as I am aware it has been set to slave and my current HDD is set to master. Although Windows detects the 2nd HDD I cannot format or access the drive although it shows up on my BIOS and under "my computer". All I get is a message stating that the 2nd HDD cannot be formatted. I have already moved all my old docs etc from the 2nd drive to the 1st, so I have been able to access the drive once but for some reason I cannot get access to it no more.I am running windows XP. There is also XP operating system on the 2nd drive ( dont know if that matters ) any suggestions or ideas?

Many thanks in advance

try accessing in disk management.

My computer - right click select manage - storage - disk management.

right click the drive for options to initialise and format.
