As for the new drive have you looked under disk management to make sure it has a partition and has been formatted? If not, click on Start, type "diskmgmt.msc" without the qoutes in the search bar and then run disk management. If the new WD drive shows up with unallocated space then you can right click on it and create a new volume. See http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/windows7/create-and-format-a-hard-disk-partition
for more detailed instructions. You can also see the status of you SSD in disk management.
