Hello,

I just bought a 1.5TB seagate hard drive. After connecting the data and power cables to the motherboard, my computer recognized it on the bios, but when i click the folder "my computer," it doesn't show it. I plan on using this hard drive just to store files.

Is there a solution to make it show up in the folder "my computer" so i can start backing up my files, or do I need to buy something else to turn it into an external drive? I would prefer internal over external to save work space.

You need to initialize and format the drive . . Right click on My Computer . . select Manage . . Disk Management

Look in the drive boxes on the lower left . . Right click on the Drive and select Initialize . . then right click on the partition and select Format . . It will ask if you want one or multiple partitions
