emailkenny: This is how I got my WD 1TB Blue (secondary) drive to show up in "My Computer" in Windows 7:Click Start, right-click Computer, and select Manage. This will bring up the Computer Management program. Once there, click Disk Management in the left pane, under Storage. This will display all of your internal drives. Ignore the top half of the page for now. Scroll down to the bottom half of the page to look for the new drive. The new drive should have a black rather than a blue bar on the top. And it should be described as Unallocated. Right-click that drive, select New Simple Volume, and follow the wizard.
Christoffer arngården: Ty man it help me.. :) i did it even on Windows 10. Just follow your steps .. Ty man agian
TheDefectiveGamingChannel: Mine does not show up in the computer management box... Do I need another SATA cable?
Challis McAffee: Thanks, man! Very helpful. Better than newegg.com customer support... they told me the drive was faulty (and out of warranty too). Anyway, you saved me.
Vishala Maharaj: Mine is not even showing how happened to you after a while, any advice how to bring it to the screen??
Tugulan LucaMihai: Man it say unable to connect to Virtual Disk Service
Levi Watts: sound nice one!
Jesse M: waste of time
zzsql: The drive is already a simple volume with data on it. For some reason Windoze sucks and I can only connect a SATA drive once between reboots and hope that it works.
If I reboot, it will see the SATA drive but only once. If I disconnect it, I cannot reconnect it again until I reboot.
PS Hit WIN+R, enter diskmgmt.msc to get to disk management without being a mouse jockey.
DYAC: My friend's business did extremely well with adwords. He basically pay google to put his promotion ads on varies websites and the conversion rate is really high. I guess it helps since he sells gag/prank gifts and his ads get display on funny autocorrect websites. He wouldn't tell me the exact amount, but I'm estimating it is near the mid 6-figure salary. No risk no rewards I guess.
