i have a friend who installed a second hdd. initially he set it as slave with the jumpers but when he looked at my computer it was not there. he then tried it on cable select and the same thing happened. on both occassions he said that it was in his device manager and showed in his bios as a secondary disk, but it refuses to show up on his "my computer". he doesn't think it is formatted. i suggested it may need that done for the computer cto allocates it a drive letter. has anyone any other suggestions

thanks

No, I think you are right. It needs to be formatted.
