EDIT: Nevermind, fixed, using the instructions on this webpage: http://www.overclock.net/t/1227647/how-to-initialize-and-format-a-new-disk-for-use-in-windows
I just installed a refurbished 2TB hard drive. When I fired up the computer, Windows automatically downloaded and installed the drivers, and finished by having a green check beside the words "ready for use." I know this was the drivers for the 2TB hard drive, since it said "Hitachi" at the beginning of the name of the product it was installing the drivers for, and this is the only Hitachi product I own.
However, when enter the Start Menu and select "computer," my main 500GB hard drive is still the only one listed.
What's going on? The computer definitely RECOGNIZES the hard drive! How else could it have installed the drivers automatically upon start-up? So, why the hell isn't it showing up?
