Windowes can't see second hard drive?

  murgle 09:34 30 Apr 2005


After several problems with my PC, I decided to reinstall windows xp. Having done that the problems have gone, but windows wont recognise the second partician of my main hard drive or the second drive I have fitted which was slit in to 2 particions.

How can I get windows to recognise the drives please.

Many thanks

the partitions need to be formatted before Windows will detect them.

How do I do this, if I can't see them in Windows.

Admin Tools / Computer Management / Disc Management / Right click the partion you want and choose format
