    Default PLEASE HELP ....storage drive does not work

    bootup went good. SSD used for C/ drive works great! the problem is the tashiba 3 tig hard drive.
    it does not show up in "MY computer". i see it in the device manager, and i se it listed in the computer hardware.
    but, i dont know how to open it for use. the device manager said it was working properly, also driver update said
    it was up to date. i also looked in the BIOS , could not find anywhere to "enable or disable".
    it does have something that i dont know about,,, three plugs on it. the SATA plug,,,the SATA POWER plug,,,AND
    a small little 2p plug on the right , next to the SATA. the drive came with out any install paper work. i dont have any
    cables , or do i have any idea where to connect it.

    any help would b great......thanx all

    Its a new drive correct? if so it most likely needs to be formatted

    left click on your start button type format in the search box

    pick from this list that comes up create and format hard disk partitions

    click on it and let me know if you see it there before we go any further

    Looks like your HDD isn't partitioned and formated. You need to enter in Administrative tools and correct the problem.
    How to:
    1. Open Control Panel, if is in Category option (upper right corner), switch it to Large Icon
    2. Look and click on icon Administrative tools
    3. In new window look for Computer management and double click it.
    4. will open new window, in the left panel look for Disk Management and click it
    5. it will open in right panel all your storage devices
    6. look for your 3TB disk and right mouse click will open pop up, look for option Format, wait to finish
    7. after the finishing the format system will automatically assign drive letter to it and you shoul be able to see it in windows Explorer.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    If the drive is only reading 2.2TB instead of 3TB you need to redo it and format in GPT to take advantage of the full 3TB drive

    See link below, you can pause the video at any point to get clarification on what to do.
