I have a SATA hard drive for my main h/d, I have fitted a second ide hard drive for extra storage, although it is seen as it boots up and when I first installed it the pc recognised it was installed there is no sign of it in my computer, I haven't formatted the second h/d, how can I find it and format it.

Before following smiler advice about formatting -you must right click on the left hand section of the relevant entry and choose "Initialize Disk"
