Okay, so my friend gave me this hardrive, because she just bought a 1tb hardrive, i dont know much about this hardrive, ive plugged it in. the light comes on. but my pc wont read it, its a windows 7 home premium.
ive tried a few cords. one thats super short and one thats really long, (if that matters), im not sure what to do. i wasnt sure if i needed drivers on my computer for it to be found or what.. im not sure if its bricked, it was on a mac once before if that matters, which im sure it does. if i could get some help that would be nice. im confused as hell.

Well did you check the jumpers if it is set to master slave also did you see if 2nd drive is enabled in bios?
