Well friends i connected a hard drive to my computer as a slave, the computer detected it, istalled it automatically and finally the dialogue box was displayed ""your new hardware is installed and ready to use"" ....... but when i enter into my computer, i m not able to see the hard drive, i m not able to see it under computer management option also....

so i downloaded Paragon Partition magic, well it was showing the hard drive but i was not able to format it by any way, can any one tell me what to do now ???

is there any software or any way through which i can get it to work....

i also used a USB HDD enclosure, when i connected it with the usb port of the computer it sounded like a new hardware is attached, it means it's detecting it but i m not able to see it inside my computer, neither m able to explore it....

PLease help ...

What does it say about the drive in Device Manager? If it doesn't appear in Disk Management, there is a hardware or drive configuration issue.
