Hello,

I just installed a new auxiliary SSD on my PC. However, it hasn't show up in the Windows 7 directory yet. Windows installed the driver automatically, and under device manager, it shows that the device "is working properly." What gives? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for how vague my question was.

Clarification: This disk has on it the OS from my laptop. Thus, it has already been formatted, of course. It was working fine, but I needed a larger drive in the laptop. I still want to get some data off of it, so I thought I could just add the thing to my desktop.

Further developments:

In "disk management," I can see the problem is that the disk is not initialized. I attempted to initialize, using the MBR style. Sadly, this attempt failed due to "an I/O error."
