Hi, I have problem with my brand new Fujitsu HDD 500GB.

The hard drives doesn't show up in My Computer. But, when I checked it under Devices and Printers, it showed up and said it works properly. Even it can be safely removed.

So is there any solution for this?

Go to DISK Management, right click on the large rectangle representing the disk data and click format. Sometimes you must first initialize the disk, which is done by right clicking on the small left side box where the disk is identified, and choose initialize. If you want to partition the drive into smaller pieces, now is the easiest time to do it simply by choosing a smaller amount of MB's than the total. Then when you finish, you go back and format the remaining amount(s).

Did the disk format? Not sure what you are unable to do?

Do you see the disk in the Disk Manager?
If it is showing, when you right click and choose "format" a Windows dialog box should come up and if you simply choose all the defaults and it will format the entire disk.

yes. I saw the disk in the disk manager. It is not initialized, and when I tried to initialize, it says that incorrect function.
