Hi everyone!!!

I'm having a problem with a SATA hard drive that my DELL Precision 890
detects, Windows XP detects at a harware level (it appears in the hardware
listing) but it won't appear in the MyPC window with the rest of the drives.
There is no hardware conflict or problems (at least Windows says so), but it
just won't work.
Anybody know anything about this or something similar?

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

It has to be partitioned and formatted before it will show up in MyPC.

Best to do that in Disk Management.
