so I just finished building my PC and everything seems to be working just fine. I have two harddrives and both have been recognized by the BIOS. They even show up in the device manager in windows and it says they are both installed, enabled, and working properly. However, I can only see ONE hard drive when I open up My Computer. I've fiddled around with a few things but I am at a loss... has anybody had the same problem or have any possible solutions? Thank you

for xp you right click on my computer and manage? you need to go to disk management and initialize the disk

if it's new it hasn't been partitioned or formatted and windows can't see it in my computer

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I am slowly finding out many of the core functions of Vista are similar to Xp's

glad it worked and you are more than welcome
