Hi folks,
I've added a second hard drive configured as a slave which, according to device manager, is working correctly. It doesn't show an icon in my computer, can anyone tell me why and how to fix it please? OS is XP pro.

Have you formatted it ?

sorry but how can I format it if there isn't an icon for it, and it doesn't appear to have been allocated a drive letter?
Tnx.

You probably need to activate it first in the hard disk managment console(note this is different from making disk active).

In XP Pro click start > control panel > admin tools > computer management > disk management.
