Hello everyone, I have just recently bought a new 250 GB Hard Drive and i'm having problems with it. I hooked it up correctly and it shows in the bois that it is in my computer, but when i check My Computer, it only shows one Hard Drive. I am really confused. Do i need a Driver for my Hard Drive? Or is something just wrong with it? Please help!





Sincerely,
ME!

P.S. I have a Western Digital Cavier SE 250 GB Hard Drive if it helps

Assuming XP. Rightclick on my computer, click on manage. Click on Disk management and all your drives will show up. Find the right one , right click and format.

Wow, thank you soooo much. Does it usually take a long time to format?

Sorry, I should have told you to check "perform a quick format" If you just did format on a 250 Gb hard drive, yes, it will take a while. Also when its done, it will show up as approx 233 Gb, not 250Gb.
