i have just installed a maxor 120GB sata HD in my computer, the BIOS recognises it, device manager recognises it but My Computer, running under Windows XP, does not see it and i cannot use it.
Does it need formatting before i can use it and it so how do i go about it.

Thanks in advance

Right click my computer and then pick manage. In the new window pick disk management. Now look in the right hand window for your drives, it should be listed there. Make sure you pick the right one. Right click on an empty space on that drive and the tools should be there to partition and format the drive.
