Slave drive not found in "My Computer"

  poph 15:18 24 Jun 2008

I have upgraded my old Pentium II 300 and installed a second hard drive as slave. It shows up in device manager and reports working OK but I cannot find it in "My Computer", the other devices still have there old letters.
Please, help.

Have you formatted the drive?

I assume Windows XP

Right click "My Computer" icon on desktop

selct manage\disk management

select your newly installed drive by right click and choose format

when complete your drive will show ready for use.
