My system currently has 2 USB hard disk drives, and I just connected a
third. There are IDE drives too of course.

My new drive is recognized, and shows up in Device Manager under Drives, but
doesn't show up in Disk Manager. It is a brand new drive, so it needs to be
partitioned and formated, but if it doesn't show up in Disk Management, how
can I do it? Is there a way to get it to show up here?

Hi, Steve.

You probably need to Initialize the new disk, as explained in the Help file
in Disk Management.

Partition magic will recognize it but use it very carefully. It can cause
problems in sizing and/or formatting.
