Question about Computers & Internet
I have a 40 gig harddrive and i want to install the new 160gig harddrive but my PC does not recognise it.
I don’t get a drive letter or an icon in My Computer for the drive even though it’s plugged in. How can I fix this?
If you have other drives installed on the system, Windows may try to install the Ultra TravelDrive with an existing
drive letter. This issue can happen in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. To correct this, follow these steps (You
must have administrative level access.):
a. Go to Control Panel.
b. Click on Administrative Tools.
c. Click on Computer Management.
d. Click on Disk Management.
e. In the drive listings, you will see the Ultra TravelDrive with its rated capacity. Right click on it.
f. Click on Change Drive Letter and Paths.
g. Click Change.
h. Click on the down arrow and select an available drive letter (We suggest “T” for TravelDrive.).
i. Press OK twice.
j. Close Computer Management and Control Panel.
You should now be able to see the drive correctly in Windows Explorer or My Computer.

Is it being recognised in bios? If it is then you might need to partition it for windows to see it properly. You can do this in the disc manager (right click my computer > Manage) Hope this helps
