Just bought a seagate baracuda 2TB drive to install in my desktop running windows 8.1. The drive is registered in the device manager, but is not showing up as a drive in my computer. Don't know what's causing this as this is my first go at replacing a HDD..

disk management will be able to partition and format that new drive.
