Re: My slave hard disk is not showing in my computer
Is it formatted ? Does it have a drive letter associated to it? If not then either format it (right click on My computer -> click Manage -> click Disk Management. Now right click the drive if it is showing there and either create partitions and/or format it if it not already formatted.
If it's already formatted, and you just need to assign a drive letter, then in Disk Management, right click the drive and click Change Drive Letter and Paths and assign an unused drive letter, say Z.
Close Computer Management and open My Computer. The new drive should show up now.

right click on "My Computer/Computer" then go to Manage then go to Disk management check to see if the drive shows there if so right click on it and navigate the tabs until you see Assign a drive letter select a letter that is not in use, i usually use p-v because its use is rare. If it does not show in Disk manager check device manager and see if its under Usb/Unknown/Drives/removable storage/ or other devices if its not there then your device may be damaged or your port may not be installed properly/damaged
**Turn your computer off, then unplug the USB cable and then the power to the drive. Restart you computer, plug the power into the hard drive, wait 10 seconds and then plug the USB into the computer. This clears the hard drive buffer. See if the drive shows up in disk management. Before formating, turn off your antivirus. **
**1. Test your drive on another pc 2. Check your bios settings
On XP computer install your seagate barracuda 400g. start the computer. when xp is already boot right click My Computer then select manage. When Computer Management dialog box appear click disk management. Look for the drive that is unallocated and format the drive and follow the instructions.
