1TB WD doesn't appear in my computer

Hi all, so I just buttoned up my new build over the weekend and now i cant seem to get my 1TB Western digital to appear in the My computer screen. i AM able to find it in the bios as well as the device manager.

Any suggestions as to what I can do to fix the problem?

Thanks!

  1. Go into Windows Disk Management, initialize the drive, assign it a drive letter, and Quick format it.
    It will then be ready to use.
