    i just bought a new western digital hardrive (40gb) and i followed everything exactly, i have it set to slave while my main harddrive is set to master ( also a WD ) and in the system bios it detects both HD's and same thing in device manager where it says this device is working properly, now my problem is, when i open 'my computer' my new HD doesnt show up, only my old one. so i cant open it, save to it or anything, whats wrong!?
