Hi, I have two brand new WD 1 tera hard drives. I deleted the partition and now I can't see them anywhere. I made them unallocated and now they don't show up in disc management or on windows explorer. Help......

Power down, unplug them, reboot, power down, plug them in, reboot.

Also, when plugged in can you see them in the BIOS?

Thanks, I finally figured it out and have reformatted the discs. Why do the hard drives come partitioned? For my purposes, I just need to through a load of files (video) onto storage and these Western Digital drives always come with 32 gig partitions. What is the reason for that?
