Default Where Is My Hard Drive?**

I've got a PC and I've tried plugging in two different external hard drives. Both times and bubble pops up in the taskbar saying that the device is intalled and ready to use. But when I go to my computer to open its folder, the hard drive isn't there.

This is really starting to piss me off so if anyone can help please do!

Go to My Computer > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management. Click on Disk Management in the left pane. The drive should show up in the right pane allowing you to format and initialize it.
