I have (3) HDDs installed, only (2) are recognized.
I have (3) HDDs. One is a Seagate, the other two are Western Digital Blacks.
The Seagate was purchased to replace a dead SSD - which housed only my OS. The two WD-Blacks housed data.
My main WD-Black works fine and can access via D:/, with the seagate on C:/, but the other WD-Black is not recognized or given a letter. I tried to troubleshoot the problem - reformatting is NOT an option.
I can see the HDD under Devices and Printers, as well as Device Manager - but other than that, I can't do much with it.
Is there any way I can get it to work, so I can access the files? It basically has 900gb worth of sample data on it.
p.s. I hope I didn't double-post this, there was an error.

Not sure how up you are on things, but did you try this.
Control Panel/Administrator Tools/Computer Management/
Click on Disk Management
You'll see all drives connected to you pc, then if the HDD is there click on it to make sure it has a letter assigned to it and is "initiated". I'm not sure but i think the "initiated" part may be fore new unformated drives. But its worth a look. Just make sure it's assigned a Drive letter.
