The only thing that I can think of is that you need to go into computer management and click on the "disk management" sub-heading under storage. From there all of the hard drives in the computer should show up. Find the new hard drive in the list and right click on the part where is say Disk 1 or Disk 2 or which ever disk is the correct one (it should be around 930gb or so). Then select initialize disk, and follow the wizard through the choices to setup the disk as a basic hard drive. After the disk is initialized you need to format it and then you should be access the drive in my computer.

Is the flash drive recognized in disk management? If yes initialize it and format it. If no, you may have bad flash drives.

La Cie USB hard dirve its lighting intermittently red and yelow and the computer not recognized


Plug your usb drive into your computer. Then right click on my computer and select manage. Select disk management in the left pane. scroll down to look for your external drive in the bottom pane. You might need to initialize the disk by right clicking the gray area to the left of your disk on the bottom pane. If its already initialized you should be able to right click the disk just to the right of where you just clicked and select format, making sure to assign a drive letter and do a quick format of ntfs through the wizard that pops up. If the drive is labeled GPT protected you'll have to convert the disk to MBR by using the diskpart command. Go to start then run and type cmd and hit enter to bring up the command prompt.
  1. Type diskpart and hit enter
  2. Type list disk and hit enter and find your disk in the output
  3. Type select followed by your disk's number, for example "select disk 1"
  4. Type clean and hit enter
  5. Close the command prompt and now you should be able to initialize and format your disk.

I have recently attached a seagate hard disk with my pc already have a sata . the 2nd one is not detecting, help me


You have to initialize and format a drive before you can use it. A brand new unformatted OEM hard drive and installed it in my Windows Vista PC. The drive is connected to the motherboard via a SATA (serial ATA) cable, just like my original hard drive. This new drive was for data/backup. When I turned on the computer, the BIOS picked it right up. However, when I got into Vista, it did not detect any new hardware. I even went into the Control Panel and chose Add Hardware and let it scan for changes, but it didn’t find anything new. Windows Plug and Play If your drive isn't detected, there is no need to panic. Windows Vista is a little funny about this sort of thing, but it is quite easy to fix. The problem is that the drive is not initialized, so the standard plug-and-play procedure for adding a drive does not apply. First, you must initialize the drive, then it will allow you to format it. After the drive has been formatted, it will be ready to use.
The first thing you need to do is go into the Control Panel, then double click on Administrative Tools. After that, open up Computer Management, then go to Storage, then Disk Management. This is where you will see all of your drives listed. Be extremely careful in this section because you don’t want to screw up your main hard drive.
What you are looking for in the Disk Management area is your new hard drive. If you only have one hard drive, it should show up as Disk 0. Therefore, your new drive should most likely be Disk 1. Underneath the name Disk 1 it should say Unknown, the size of the disk, and Not Initialized. Right click in this area and you should get a pop-up window. Click Initialize Disk and it should only take a couple of seconds. Your hard drive is now ready to be formatted. Formatting Your Drive Once your new hard drive is initialized, you will still have to format the drive before you can use it. To format, right-click in the column to the right of the Disk 1 label and then click New Simple Volume in the menu that pops up. From here, you can allocate how much of the drive you want for a new volume, what drive letter you want to call it, give it a name, and finally format the hard disk.
Formatting the hard drive may take a while, depending on the size. My 500 gigabyte drive took nearly an hour to format, so don’t be alarmed if your's takes a while. Once the format completes, your new hard drive will now show up in My Computer and you can start putting files on it.
