    New Samsung 2TB Internal fails to display

    I have just added a 2TB Samsung Spinpoint to my Windows 7 pc - the system detected the hard drive and installed drivers then asked me to restart. But on restart the disk does not show up in windows and hasn't been assigned a letter but does show up in device manager ...

    What am I doing wrong???

    Have you enabled it in Disk Management?

    click on control panel > admin tools > computer management
    click storage> disk management on the left

    format it.

    it then should work.

    Re: New Samsung 2TB Internal fails to display

    Thanks guys, that worked a treat.

    No matter what I tried it wouldn't populate via the device manager though it did come up originally - but when I added my other two Internal Hard Drives it disappeared again.

    cheers
