Hard Drive

By jacksonda ·
I've installed a second SATA Hard Drive. It's mentioned under Disk Drives in Device Manager but there is no icon in My Computer. I can't open it.

Have you formatted this drive yet ?...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Hard Drive

Right click on 'My Computer' > Manage > Disk Management (in lefthand pane) > right click on the drive image (righthand pane), look for the 2nd HDD and choose from either 'Format' or 'Drive Letter & Path'.

See if it's listed now.

The hard drive is not mentioned in Disk Management.It's only mentioned in Device Manager under Disk Drives. I've even tried making it into a external USB Drive but with the same results.THE Hard Drive has Data on it.

What OS is in use here?

You may be better off reconnecting it and loading with a Live Linux like Knoppix and seeing if you can now access the HDD and copy the Data off it.
