Two hard drive ports?

Hello Everyone:

Just today i upgraded my laptop hard drive from 160gb to 320gb hard drive. I bought a bare hard drive off the internet and it was very easy to install. Here are my questions: When i opened my laptop to change my hard drive, i found to ports for two hard drives rather than one. At first, i tried taking the 160gb out to replace it was the 320gb, but then i decided to just keep them both in there. The question is this, when i restarted my laptop, it found new hardware, updated it automatically and said it was running fine. Now i looked for the second hard drive but i cannot find it. Still i can only find the 160gb hard drive. Does that mean, i have to fill up the first hard drive and let the second one start or how can i send something to the second hard drive and make it viewable as well as the 160gb hard drive?

  1. You just need to have Windows recognize the drive. Right click on My Computer and go to Manage. Click on Disk Management. You should see the 320Gb drive listed.
  2. ^ +1

    You then need to allocate and format the drive as a primary drive.
