Installing a second HDD in dv9000 laptop

Hi, I have an AMD hp DV9000 laptop, and I just purchased a fujitsu 100gb SATA II hdd as an add on to my laptop, it says its compatible with my laptop and I have two spaces, I get the drive installed and it shows up in device manager but not as an accessible drive in My Computer. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Whenever I click the update driver button in device manager it tells me they are up to date. Also, don't know if it helps, but when i swap drives 1 and 2, my new drive lets the computer boot past the bios, which does mean that it works...
Please help!
Thanks,
Jack

Holy Crap, Thank you so much!
If there was a way for me to give you a million rep points, I would.
Thanks so much KC!


Good part, is that this thread is now on Google, so instead of people searching for help on google getting all this stuff about have a wrong caddy, they will at least now get a software aspect.

Thanks again.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
