I have 2 SSD.

My 2nd SSD arrived today, and I connected it to my PC. The bios reads the 2nd SSD, no problem.

I don't want to run raid, I just want windows to read them separately (like a C drive, and an E drive). I want to use my 2nd SSD just to store my media files.

When I boot into windows, I only see my C drive, and I do not see my other SSD drive. What could be the problem?

Basically, shouldn’t windows read the 2nd SSD as an E drive?

  1. I called Mushkin Tech Support, they are very reliable and helpful.

    The gentleman on the phone told me I had to initialize the new drive in windows. I did that, and it worked. Now my windows reads my 2nd SSD as an E drive, which is what I intended.

    Thank you for any potential answers/help for this question, but it is now solved.
