    You probably only have to format it. Control Panel/admin tools/computer management/storage/disc management. It should be in there. Right click on it & format.

    ok what you need to do is look at the jumper settings on the drive one needs to be master and the other needs to be slave, wether or not the applies to scsi i do not remeber. scsi is rarely used anymore.
