Windows 7: hard drive not displaying "my computer and disk manager"

hard drive not displaying "my computer and disk manager"

I have 2 Sata drives installed on a Windows 7 32bit machine. Both were formatted during a clean install of Windows 7 unlimited. The primary hd is a 300gb WD and the other is a 500gb Seagate "IDE\DiskST3500418AS_CC34" is the hardware id on the second drive.

I can see both in device manager but it says both are fully updated.

P.S. I haven't found any driver from seagate online, which i think might help.

I have resolved the problem.

I simply went to Downloads | Seagate and downloaded the DiskWizard application. Using Seagate's application, I was able to partition, allocate, and synchronize the D drive in few common sense steps.
