I have a really weird problem with my WD internal hard drive. I built my pc, ASUS PRIME Z370-P motherboard, 650-watt power supply, 8700 i7 CPU, 1060 Asus graphics card and Samsung 970 250 gigs for my rig. Its fast, and I needed more space to store my games. That is why I bought the WD hard drive 1 terabyte along with the pc parts and fixed it up. Note: This was 4 months ago.
After being really busy, and occasionally being able to play on the rig and did not set up the WD, but over winter break, when I had free time and was trying to download new games(Battlefront 2 Starwars), I discovered that I did not have enough space to put it in, and was surprised to realize that I put it on the SSD(which I only reserve for things like Windows). So I uninstalled all my games and tried to put it into my hard drive to discover that
MY HARD DRIVE WASN’T SHOWING! I tried everything, I went to the disc manager, but not even the unallocated space did not show up for the hard drive, so it was not a problem with initializing it. Additionally, it shows up in bios and in device manager. However, when I try to see the volume for the hard drive NOTHING SHOWS UP!
I have tried changing the SATA cable a reconnecting and disconnecting, resetting bios to default.
Do you guys have any advice? Is it not working because I did not do this when I first bought this???
Thanks, plz help quick!
