I put in a 500gig hard drive. It is being recognized by the computer but is not showing up in My Computer. It is also not accessible through anything but the device manager. What do I have to do to fix it?

Did you format it?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Go through Disk Management...does it reflect it?

Agree with DC, sounds like it's not formatted. My Computer cannot see unformatted drives, which explains in part why Disk Management exists.
