    so I got myself a new pc with a 250gb HDD. of course I needed more, so I put my old 250gb HDD in there as well. the BIOS sees and acknowledges the second HDD, yet windows doesn't see it. PLS help

    my dad works for nintendo.
    go on control panel > administrative tools > disk manager

    on disk manager create a partition for that hard drive and assign him a letter

    be careful on selecting the right drive.
