Hi. I installed a new Sata Port Card & and new Hard drive. The card was a whole other problem, but is now. Properly installed and showing on My Computer. However i cannot access the new secondary hard drive.. I have followed the intructions i read about, going to Admin tools, Disk management. But it is not showing there......Any and all advice would be greatly apprechiated....Please bare in mind, i am a very basic computer user. I will ask for "The idiots Guide" type answers if thats ok.........

Thanks again. I have been doing similar as the video requires. But in the video, after you press Disk management, he gets a pop up window "initilize disk"...I don't get this......I imagine this is where my problem lies and i can't proceed as the video says........
