Sorry if this is a typically noobish question but I couldn't find a coherent answer anywhere.. so;

I have just finished my first build and it has an SSD as well as a storage HDD. It detected the SSD fine and that is where Windows 7 is installed, The second hard drive is found in BIOS and in Windows Device Manager but it is not shown in My Computer. It sounds healthy and is all powered etc, i've checked that, but i cant read or write to it.

So my question really is; Is it broken? How do I get it to shown in My Computer?

Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management, locate the new drive (should be un-allocated space), create a new partition and format...
