I have a spare 40GB hard drive (taken from my Sky+ box, which I upgraded to 160GB).
I want to use the 40GB disk as a second hard drive in my PC but the PC will not recognise it and/or let me format it. (Please assume for these purposes that all connections have been made properly, because I am confident that I have done so.)
How can I best make the PC recognise it and format it?!
My plan is to use the hard drive simply as a back-up disk for the documents and settings on the current hard drive (in conjunction with and/or instead of back-ups to DVD). Once formatted etc, will I be able to use it simply by dragging and dropping onto the new drive letter and/or by using a back-up utility?
