I just got this via UPS about 1 hour ago. I bought it from
When i start my PC, or go into bios, the hard drive is there, recognized, "plain as day", but it does not show up in windows under "Computer", or any other windows (Vista Home Basic) folders, etc.. ??? Why???
My 141 GB hard drive is FULL, and I MUST transfer ALL of my games, MP3, MP4, Document, etc.. Libraries to this 1.5 TB drive ASAP!
I would appreciate; ANY or ALL HELP!!!
The drive is brand new, out of the box about 1 hour! I am so fed up, I would even trade it down for a USB 1.5 or 1 TB Hard drive, and it can even be up to 6 months old!!!
Thank You!

You need to go into disk management and initialize the drive before it will show up in windows. Right- click my computer, select manage. Disk management is in the left pane.
