I have just used a sata drive from my desktop in a netgear stora. I have now put it back in desktop pc and although it shows up in device manager it isnt in my computer and therefore im not able to format it, any suggestions. thanks
You won't find it in my computer... yet. Look for it in disk management. If it's already formatted, you should just be able to assign it a drive letter. Otherwise, if it's "raw" you will need to partion and format it, then assign it a drive letter. Once it has a drive letter assigned to it, then it will show up under "my computer".
