this is my first build...
how do i check if a drive is hidden?
and how do i know if it is attached to windows?
in windows you should be able to access the command line
start---> Run----> CMD
in command line you will put volumes so if you have 2 drives you would put C: for your main drive which windows is on and D: is your disk drive but if you had an addtional drive attached it might be E: F: G: H: etc...
and youll know if windows sees it when you put in one of the above letters and it doesnt say the syntax of the command cannot be found and it just says
then you are in good shape
let me know what you find out
