Hi, bought a second hand 20gb harddrive with no gaurantee ( idiot ). It shows up in device manager but nowhere else, it's not in the administrative tools, any ideas??

You may need to set the drive in BIOS for LBA or auto detect the drive

jumpers set right on the back of the drive?

does it not show under disc managment. if it shows in devise manager i would think that the drive is ok

Has it been Fdisk'd and formatted? It may show up in the BIOS but unless it has been formatted it can't be used.
