    Urgent Pc Help Needed!

    Right I have just bought a 200gig 72rpm hard drive Ive set the jumpers to slave yet xp isnt finding the new drive

    It has acknowledged its existance but the second drive doesnt show up in my computer..I am thinking this is because it has no partition


    BUT HOW IN GODS NAME DO I CREATE A PARTITION ON THE SECOND DRIVE

    Its annoying me now

    Is it being shown in the bios, if so follow this:

    Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

    Should see the disk here if everything is setup correctly. Good luck

    It's not as straightforward as I believe it should be, and u can spend ages looking for a solution, unless u've seen it before!

    Do as Adam says, or right click on "My Computer" on ur desktop, and click on "Manage". Then the "Computer Management" window pops up. In "storage" on the LHS, click and expand, and click on "Disk Management". Then U can right click ur new drive and format/partition it.

    Here are instuctions from Seagate. Clicky Clicky

    Well done mate

    I had a nightmare with my 250gig Western Digital drive as well, sometimes as B.A.D says, things aren't as straight forward as they should be.
