I can't get Windows to assign my HDD a letter. SSD is C: with my OS installed, but it doesn't show the HDD. It shows up in device manager, and my BIOS sees it, but I can't use it. How do I fix this?

Edit: I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I have both drives hooked up to the two SATA III ports on my motherboard.

ASUS P8P67 Pro
120GB Intel 510 series SSD
1TB WD Caviar Black 7200RPM 64MB Cache SATA III HDD

Is your HDD a new drive or does it have data on it?

If it's a new blank drive you need to go into Disk Management and initialize/format it.
