    I've added a second hard drive on my XP Home machine. I set the jumper to slave. I't was recognized at startup. It is showing up twice on my device manager. It says it is working properly but I don't see it when I look for it with Explorer.

    Any hints on how I find it so I can format it?

    start > run > diskmgmt.msc

    Or right click on My Computer > select Manage > then select Disk Management.
