Just as the title says, I bought a new hard drive and windows is not seeing it. Last week I purchased a WD Red 2TB drive in hopes of giving me some more elbow room to organize all my junk. I received it yesterday and opened the box, pretty well packaged from Amazon, and let the drive warm up in my home. It sat on my doorstep in freezing temperatures so I figured It wouldn't hurt it.
Anyhow, I moved around some stuff on different drives and replaced a smaller drive with the WD red. Bios and Windows do not detect the drive, but opening Western Digita;'s sata lifeguard tools it sees it under 'Physical drive" but not "Logical." Ive run 2 extended tests on the drive itself with it passing, Starting a third session on my way out the door now. I have updated my bios, usb3.0 drivers and sata drivers for the mobo. I don't want to give up just yet, but would like to be sure I am not leaving any stone unturned before I ship this back to Amazon.
thanks for any help you guys can give me
