In my recently built system, I have 4 HDD. 1 WD Caviar Black,2 Seagate and 1 Samsung. They're all connected through SATA. In device manager everything is good and they are recognized, but when I go to My computer I only see my primary drive,the WD caviar black, the rest is not there...wtf

Check your BIOS to see if the hard drives are there. Also, try the address of your drive in windows explorer... for example, if the seagate address is F, write this F:\ and check.

It's probably related to Windows.

right click them. it should show "create partition" or partition drive. when you make the partition it will format it for you in either NTFS or FAT. depending on what you want. (go NTFS)
