Hey there, I’ve just installed a new 1tb WD Blue internal hard drive into my tower computer using a SATA cable, but my computer can’t seem to detect the drive at all. I have tried installing “Acronis True Image WD Edition” but it can’t do it either. I have also tried right clicking on the computer icon, then ‘Manage’, but nothing I do seems to get the drive to show up. I have had previous experience of a 4TB drive not being detected, but I remember finding some software somewhere that fixed it.
I have recently installed a new graphics card and am wondering if the power consumption might be too much to support the drive as well. Would that do it?
Windows 7, 64 bit
Intel i7 processor, ASUS motherboard.
