I added a second HDD to my XP machine but windows explorer doesn't list it under "My Computer". Device Manager knows it's there and says it's working properly. what could be wrong? what can I do?


You probably need to initialize the HDD before the drive will show up in My Computer. Right click on My Computer and select "Manage". A computer management window will open up. From the botton left of the window click on "Disk Management".
You should now see a list of your drives in that window, right click on the newly installed drive and create a new simple volume. It should now create and new drive with a drive letter and format the drive ready for use.
Once its done the new drive should show in My Computer.

Good luck and kind regards.

  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the Performance and Maintenance link.

    In a few seconds, Disk Management will load on the right side of the Computer Management window.
    Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the + icon to the left of Storage to expand the option.
  6. You can now format a hard drive, change a drive's letter, partition a hard drive, or do whatever else you need to do in Windows XP's Disk Management tool.
