That second drive mibaup has it got anything on it? If not then it is worth formatting it using DISKPART get back to me if you don't know that route.

You're quick
I have bad news: I did eventually find the drive in Disk managment after refreshing the page, but I did another boot and now the pc is stuck on windows logo at boot when the 2nd hard drive is connected so I had to unplug it , does that mean the hard drive was working and decided to break after a few minutes ?

No mate it suggests to me there is something not quite right with that drive. Any chance of plugging t into another port or better - machine to check to see if it causes any problems there or even do a test on it (the drive)?

sorry I wasn't here a few days, I am going to plug it again and I have a question : in order to see the second drive as a letter in Computer you must format it? or I can see what files are on it before formatting?
