Hard drive not showing


#1

Hello.

I have a WD Black 2TB hard drive. For some reason, it’s not showing in my computer or listed in Disk Management. I did have an OS on it so it has worked before. My question is how do I get it to show up so I can format it? Thanks

Hi,

If you remember the drive name or letter then you can try check disk command to check its status.

Thank You. However, I did find the issue. It was an unplugged SATA cable on the motherboard. Thanks again!

I would try different SATA cable as well as well as a different power cable. Also, try the HDD on a different computer if possible. Check disk management see if it’s listed there.
