If you have a secondary hard drive, the jumpers on the drive need to be set to slave instead of master. Check the documentaiton of your hard drive if you have problems changing the jumper settings.
SATA HDD's don't have jumpers.
For the original poster, if your problem is that you cannot access or use the HDD, do the following:
- Right click My Computer.
- Click Manage.
- Go to Disk Management on the list to the left.
- Initialize the HDD you're having problems with.
- Format the drive.
- Assign a drive letter.
From there, you should be good to go.
