I’ve just bought a WD10EARS 1 TB HDD. According to the label i don’t need to do anything to it as i’m using Windows 7.
The problem i have is that it is recognised by ‘Device Manager’ and also ‘Hard Disc Sentinal’, but according to ‘My Computer’ it doesn’t exist. I have Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit, AMD Phenom 2 X4 Quad core 3000MHz, 945 processor, 4 GB of Ram. An ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series graphics card with 1GB of ram.
I want to use the WD HDD as additional space for storing video, music, photos etc. The OS is on another HDD.
Do i need to do something to this drive or is it dead?
I know a bit about computers but not a lot…
It seems to me that it needs to be formatted but i have no idea how to do it. If believe the label, it should work straight from the bag.
Happy New Year!
Mine will start when i get this drive working…
