It is a second hard drive and is recognised in the bios when booting up, but it does not appear in windows explorer or in my computer. The O.S. is windows ME, the motherboard is SOYO dragon platinum, AMD 1200. I hope that is al you need to let me know how to solve the problem. Thank you.

have you formatted HD

just a thought but I had what I think is a similar problem and it was down to Power Tools. Im not techinical at all but the bios could see HD but nothing appeared in Explorer or my computer other than 'ESDI'. Removing Power Tools solved it. Jane

Is it a newly fitted second drive? Has it been formatted?

I had similar symptoms when I fitted a second drive. I used Partition Magic to format it and then Windows recognised it.
