Windows 7: Hard disk not showing in My Computer

Hard disk not showing in My Computer

Hi there

I've got some problems with my pc and decided to reinstall my OS on a SATA drive(320gb). But I also have important files on an IDE(80gb). BIOS sees both HDDs and Device Manager. Same goes for Windows 7 Install. But the IDE doesn't show up in My Computer, and I can't acces the files

Please help!

Have you looked in Disk Management? Is it seen there?

You may have to assign a drive letter there, or maybe even do a "rescan" or "refresh" from the menus.

Yep, it may be just as simple as assigning it a drive letter.
