Bought one from eBay a short while ago, 20 odd gigs fer 20 odd quids.
Went and bought a double jointed ribbon cable because the existing only went from MB to 1st HDD. Plugged it in and managed to work out which end was the primary HDD. Sorted. Nice. No problem. Assumed the other connection was the seconday HDD, I plugged it in. Plugged the power cable in.
Upon starting up, I got the usual 'New Hardware Detected' thing and it automatically scanned and installed drivers.
Now. This is the part where Davy nearlly flipped his lid. Went into 'My Computer' to admire my new HDD...and...NOTHING. I assumed this is the usual 'Restart now blah de blah' kinda thing. Restarted. Got the usual primary drive check thing. Primary was my usual drive, and the secondary drive check was my new drive. Seemed ok, but still no secondary HDD in 'My Computer'.
I can't format it, because I have no idea what the drive ID is.
