I made up an RMA through Seagate.
It is always good to have a few extra cables, so you can troubleshoot problems

Voice of Reason?

Hi Chaps,

I had the same problems, I was asking the oracle (Google) but nothing! It was only when i reached a zen like state of anger and was using my Ninja mind skills on the disk manager that i realsied, something soooo simple that i nearly collapsed into a singularity....... Windows had not yet assigned it a Drive Path/Letter. I promptly right clicked the volume (that wasnt appearing ) and chose

--> Change Drive Letter and Paths <--

I then used the top option and chose a letter, Clicked OK and VOILA!!! i had my 1 Tb Sata Volume in the "Computer" window. I hope this helps a few, let us know how you get on :)
