My computer has an ASUS MB M4A89GTD PRO and it runs Windows 7. Its primary drive is a 1T WD RPM STAT 6.MB/s Black. It runs via STAT. I wanted to install a second drive in parallel to use as an internal backup and for some other files. The second drive is Seagate Barracuda 1T RPM STAT 6.MB/s. Both drives are seen in BIOS, and the storage configuration is set to IDE. The "device manager" screen shows both drives. However, when I go to the "Computer" screen its not there. Also, when I go to try to find it when backing-up my computer it is not there. I have tried scanning for new hardware nothing.

Might need to mount it in the OS.

Right click My Computer > Manage > Disk Management.

Make sure it shows up there and make sure its mounted.

Good luck.

It needs to be formatted before it can be recognized. follow runwithsporks directions, when you see the disc in disc management, right click, and format. you probably want to choose NTFS, once it is done formatting it should be good to go.
