New Velociraptor not showing up? Tags: Hard Drives Velociraptor Disk Management Storage Last response: January 4, 2011 8:27 PM in Storage Share Itzviral January 4, 2011 8:20:31 PM Hello. I just recieved my new Velociraptor 150gb hard drive in the mail today, and I plugged it in and it is not working. I believe it is because it is unformatted, but i am not sure. -The drive does not show up in "My Computer" -The drive DOES show up in "Device Manager" -The drive does not show up in "Computer Management"/"Disk Management". As far as I've been told, to format a new drive you have to go to Disk Management, but my Velociraptor is not showing up there. What could be the problem?

How do I check if it shows up in the bios? (as in where do i navigate to to check?) Figured that out. The drive is indeed visible in the Bios.
