I have purchased a WD 5001AALS sata hd and installed it and booted up but the new icon does not show. I am operating win xp 3 gig with 1 gig memory, An asus board. I have done this before with a seagate drive and had no problems. This will be a third hd on this pc. Just can't figure what I am missing.
I checked device manager and the drive is there listed, but no show. I rebooted and still nothing. Tried help and went through the steps but it tells me my new hd is working prefectly, but no icon I cannot access the drive. I am using this drive as a extra drive to store pics on. Need help bad. Thanks...

Re: new install: hard drive icon will not show on my computer window

In disk management, right click on the gray area representing the disk, select initialize, then create a partition and format
