Need help setting up new HDD

I bought myself a WD 1tb caviar black drive to accompany my samsung 840 250gb ssd as astorage drive. I plugged it in, all coords are good and I'm pretty sure I heat it spinning. It isn't detected in bios or as a disk drive in windows... I only see it in device manager disk drive section. Please help! I'd like to be able to install more than 12 games lol

  1. Just open your case screw it in to the drive "shelf" thingy plug it into a SATA port and plug the power thingy in then fire that ****er up. If it dosent work try getting the latest update from your mobo's home website.

    If you can see it in device manager, then the bios knows about it.
    You need to prepare it for use in windows.
    Go to control panel/administrative tools/computer management/storage/ disk management
    You will see information about your devices.
    Select your new drive and make it a primary partition

    And... are your games unusually large?
    I might have expected that you could install many more.
