so you have a laptop with 2 HDD bays? is that correct?

and you want to format the HDD in Bay 2? correct?

is there data on that drive you need? if not, then allow windows to format it and assign it a drive letter - done

---

use Disk Management to format the drive (right mouse-click Computer in Start Menu, then click Manage)

Are you talking about an external floppy drive?
