Hi! Recently i had problems with my external hard drive because my sata/usb bridge was faulty and it only worked 1 time out of 30 tries.I was told i could install it in my computer as a normal internal hard drive, so i did! everything is plugged well (sata and power cable) the HDD spins but is not recognised in my BIOS. It's not in my disk management neither. Is there something i must do other than plug it in and power on computer?

I was not able to find it in my HDD list but in the boot priority i found: Removable device (wich has never been there before)

Ps:Sorry for my bad english.

Update: i now have a new drive in my computer. called: Disc Drive (e: ) and when i click it it says: E: / Application not found.

Could it be that my pc think it's a disc drive? This drive does not appear in Disk Management but is there in My Computer.

Forgot to say! i am running Windows 7 ultimate 64Bit
