Installing a new laptop hard drive
I am trying to install a new hard drive (Western Digital 80GB IDE) into my Toshiba A70 laptop. I purchased an external hard drive enclosure in hopes of getting it formatted and putting an image of my last drive on it. I am having trouble formatting it though. Whenever I attach the drive to my USB, my computer detects the new hardware and the type of drive, but it does not show up as a drive in "My Computer".
I've checked Disk Management, but it shows up as an unallocated space on a seperate drive and I can't do anything to it. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get this drive formatted?
Thank you for your help.
