software from the manufacturer's site. Run the software to make sure the drive is OK and it will be detected. Most of them ship the software with a new hard drive unless it is a OEM (bare) drive. and most of them will offer to format the drive from the software. After that is done, you should be OK.
I really need some help!!
Got a new hard drive, put it in an external case, connect to my PC through USB. It did not show up in My Computer of course coz it has not been formated yet. So I went to computer management and although the new hard drive shows up in device management and the property says it is working properly, it does not show up in the disc management. So I cannot format it. What can I do?
Could it be my external case? I got it brand new lately. It is called NexStar CX, pretty cheap, cost me $30. and it has one USB port and a power button at the back and that's all it has. No other switches.
Thanks in advance!!
