    Good point. When I built this PC I was freaking out because my WD Caviar Black (G:\) wasn't being recognized by Vista in 'My Computer'. I knew it came un-formatted but I thought that was how you were supposed to format it. Luckily it took me a whole of 10 minutes to go into diskmgmt.msc and format the drive.
