needs to have a partition put on it before it can be seen.
Either boot up with your W2K cd and get into the Recovery Console so you can run the chkdisk.exe program and create a partition on it......or use W98 bootdisk, get to the A: prompt, type FDISK (this will be FAT32 for right now but will get it seen).
Then CHANGE DRIVES from the menu, choose the second drive, and create a partition.
Once that's done, remove the bootdisk, and boot up so it takes affect. Then you can go into My Computer, right click the new second drive, choose FORMAT from the menu, and choose NTFS from the choices.....
Hello all : I just physically installed a new drive into my PC. When I open "my computer" it doesn't show up.
When I open the device mgr, it's shows up with the proper name/model. I need to get to this drive to format it with NTFS.
If the computer knows it's there, but won't recognize it in "my computer" how do I get to it?.
OS;Win2K PRO, AMD64 system.
