    I have installed a second hard disk in my computer. The BIOS is picking it up and when I goto the Device Manager it is detected also. Problem is when I goto My Computer, my first hard disk drive is the only drive in there. What am I doing wrong?

    You probably need to format the new hard drive. You can do this in Administrative Tools in XP I believe.

    You haven't formatted it within disk manager yet. Right Click My computer, Manage and it's in there.
