New Build, SSD for OS, Secondary WD drive not visible

Hello all,

Just put together my first build and am having an issue where I can't access my my secondary storage drive. I'm able to see the drive in the "device manager" but not in "disk management". I installed win8 on the ssd then reconnected the hdd drive but can't see it. Help please . . .

win 8 64bit home
cpu: core i7 3770k
mb: msi z77a-g45 thunderbolt
ram: 32gb (4x8gb) 1866 ddr3
gpu: asus gtx680
ssd: 120gb intel
hdd: 500gb wd

  1. Has the HDD been formatted already? What status is shown in Device Manager? Any errors indicated?
