  Blubottle 09:54 08 Jan 05

I have just replaced my primary slave HDD with a bigger one Seagate Barracuda 80 Gb. The problem is my system has detected it, divice manager shows it installed but in my computer there is no icon shown so I cant click on it to perform formatting ect, I have set it up as a slave , O/S 2000 pro. can anyone advise on this

I dont know to much about 2000

But if you right click "My Computer" do you see manage? If you do select it and then a box opens.

Now click on disc management and then the disc you want to format. Right click on it and select format.

Check BIOS and ensure it is set to 'Auto' and I think LBA

Right click on My Computer then choose Manage then Disk Manager. If its showing there Right click on it and partition andd format it.
