Can't see new 80GB IDE HD in My Computer under WIN2k, but shows up in Disk Management
Posted on 2003-12-09
I just added a new 80 GB Seagate ST380011A drive to my computer as a second drive. Using cable select jumper setting. I have a Dell 8100 Dimension 1.5 Ghz machine running Win2k SP4. The hard drive is formatted using NTFS. My old HD is a 20gb Maxtor with 3 partitions, 1 NTFS and 2 FAT32. The new sdrive will not show up in My Computer, however it will come up under disk management and with the command prompt when I type the drive letter. I have tried many reboots and reinstalls to get it to show up normally, but I can't get it to appear.
