I just purchased a secondry 3GB SATA III internal drive and installed it however it does not show up as a drive with my others when I go into Windows Explorer. Does it need to be formatted before Windows recognizes it?

Thanks for responding cin19...I'll give Disk Management a try and see what happens. I'm hoping that my MB does support a 3TB drive (you are right, I did mean 3TB). Thanks!
