I have just plugged in a second hard drive (Maxtor 80gb) to be used for saving 'documents' on such as photos, the new drive is visible within device manager but when I go into 'My Computer' it is not showing. Device manager states that the drivers are all up to date etc. I am at a loss as to why it cannot be seen or used. Any one got any ideas?? Thanks in advance!!!!
