Default Hardrive

I hooked a hardrive up (slave) to my computer....It recognises it when the computer boots up in the bios. But not in "my computer"

How do I find it?

If the drive isn't formatted it will not show up. In xp go to start, right click my computer. Go to manage, computer management will launch. Go to disk management. Find the hdd listed as unallocated, and right click this drive....format.

Well in one word they are crap. And they are not worth using at all a specially now that we have XP. If you don't like XP then use Windwos 98SE far more superior to ME
