only seeing 5gb although the hard drive is 80gb

By david2u ·
just added a slave drive to my sony pcv-rx860 computer.
master is 80gb, and I added another 80gb hard drive.
when I look at the properties for the new drive, it only shows 5 gb.
any help would be appreciated.

You'll need to tell us Step by Step what you have done here

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to only seeing 5gb although ...

As your vast amount of information doesn't allow us to even begin to guess what has happened here.

What Type of HDD is this IDE or SATA?

Was it a New or Used HDD that you added?

How did you Format it?

Did you even format it?

What OS is in use here?

What changes did you make to the Drive and how did you plug it in?

Where are you seeing the Drive shown as 5 GIG?

But if this was a new HDD that you added here it needs to be Formatted before your OS whatever it is can even see this Drive unless of course it had a Test Partition added for Quality Control while it was being tested during the Manufacturing process.
