For some reason, I cannot seem to get my Western Digital 1TB HDD to actually show up and have access to save stuff to it. I have a Samsung Evo 120g SSD that is working perfectly fine though.
I have the sata data and power cables properly plugged into the HDD and have switched cables around to verify it wasn't an issue elsewhere. Anything I can do before I consider this piece of hardware to be defective?
One note - There is an empty 8 pin connector on the back as well, but that shouldn't matter as long as the Sata data and power cables are in, correct?
Thanks for your time and help. Sorry if not elaborate enough. Any important information that I left out, please ask for.
