    Hello Gang,

    A friend of mine is trying to install a second Hard drive on his PC. The hard drive is showing in the 'Device manager' but is not showing under 'My Computer'

    Any advice please?

    Cheers

    It needs to be partitioned and formated before it will show in My Computer. You can do that from Disk Management in Device Manager.
