I put the bad HD in another machineas a primary slave. It was recognized in the boot up display and in the bios, but doesn't show up in explorer or My Computer. I'm not sure what this means. I'm debating buying a new HD, but why does it show up on the boot screen and in bios and then doesn't show in explorer?


If you are running Win2K or WinXP, you'll have to let Disk Administrator recognize the drive before you can see it in Windows.
