    I have a seagate barracuda 500GB harddrive that I'm using as a secondary harddrive. My main boot drive with my os is a 150GB raptor. this drive works find, however I cannot detect my seagate. When I go into the BIOS, it looks like its detected there, but when I log into windows I can't see it. Thanks in advance for the help

    Is this a new drive or had it been working in the past?

    Post a screenshot of disk management.

    How do you know it's been formatted? Did you do it?
    Can you see it in disk management?
