Solved 2 HD on one computer. Tags: Hard Drives Computer HD Storage Last response: April 3, 2012 11:29 PM in Storage Share bosa March 29, 2012 12:26:45 AM I upgraded my dads HD awhile back he had a 500gb one now I put in a 2TB one and it runs fine. My question is to hook up the old 500gb hard drive and have it be recognize under my computer how do I do that? Currently when I put in the old HD there is no sign of it.. I go into Bios and it dose not show up I only see the 1 2TB HD being recognized how do I get the old drive to be used and recognized?

Find out which one isn't, in the BIOS, and enable it (there's usually a setting for it somewhere in there). It's also advisable to put the drives in sequential SATA slots: SATA0 and SATA1 for hard drives, SATA2 and up for whatever else. It's not a requirement but it works the bus less.
