WD 1.5TB Green not showing up


#1

Hello, I recently bought and installed a 1.5TB Green as a second drive for storage. It shows up when I go to device manager, but not under hard disk drives. My mobo is a MA770T UD3P with up-to-date drivers. I enabled RAID in the BIOS. Is there anything else I have to do to use my drive? Thanks!

You need to open Start > Run and write diskmgmt.msc, then create a partition for that drive. Or use Acronis True Image instead.

Thanks, should I make it an extended partition?

Assuming you will be using it for storage, then yes, you should make it an extended partition.
