I have had a WD 160GB SATA hard drive as my primary HD and I recently bought a Seagate 80GB SATA hard drive to use as a secondary storage space. I connected all the power, SATA cables correctly and when I boot my comp, it shows on the display that my WD 160GB is the primary and Seagate 80GB is the slave. However, when I go on to my comptuer, I don't see the new hard drive. When I check the device manager, it still indicates that it recognizes both of my hard drives. Why is it not showing up on my computer to be used?

try to check in device manager,scan for hardware changes.
possible so windows can not detect, try the windows format
I just bought a second Western Digital internal hard drive the same size as the one that's already in my computer when it's connected it shows up in Device Manager but not in my computer
