OP SYSTEM XP HOME THE COMPUTER IS A DESK TOP OWN BUILD I have just installed a maxtor 80gb second local hard disc to replace my previous 40gb hard disc. All seemed to go well until I tried to locate it on my computer. It is in systems as ok no problems it is in Cios it is shown on my belarc program as ok but it is not shown anywhere on my computer so i cannot click on it to use it.I am completely mystified can anyone tell what has gone wrong and how can Ifix it.
Thank you for the replies. My device manager shows the 2 hard drives .The only actions they seem to be able to do are UPDATE/DISABLE/UNINSTALL but i cannot see how i could format it from the device manager
