    OK guys, Im about to do a windows 7 install, but I am changing this computer.
    I currently have a Maxtor 120Gig drive with windows xp installed. Sata
    Also, 2 CD/DVD drives, one is a burner One IDE the other SATA
    1, WD 500 gig HD, for storage.

    And now 1 TB Toshiba hard drive. that I am adding also, SATA.

    Now what I want to do is take the stuff on the 500, and put it on the 1TB,
    Then format the 500 and us it for windows 7 install.

    Here is my sistuation.

    I have installed all 3 drives.

    In MY COMPUTER, the 3rd HD does not show up.
    But in My computer, hard ware manager, it does.
    It has NOT been formated yet..


    So how do I format it, so that windows XP sees it in My computer?

    Thanks.
