3 hard drives, only 2 seen in "My computer"
Sorry if this seems like a noob question, but I've searched google to no avail
I recently got another hard drive, Seagate 500GB SataII model, and installed it today.
I went into "My computer", and could only see the first two hard drives, and not the new one installed! I checked the control panel, going into device manager and looked there, and the funny thing is it recognized three hard drives in the device manager.... Really strange. And yes, the drivers have been updated etc... What could be wrong?

Never mind, I figured it out, didn't know I had to "initialize" it. After formatting it, seems to show up... thanks!
