Here is the documentation for your computer: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8200/r...

The second HDD that you added must be formatted before the system will recognize it. Open Control Panel ---> Administrative Tools ---> Computer management ---> Disk Management. Then select the new drive. Right click on this drive and NTFS format it. Re-start computer.
