Windows 7: ST3750528AS HD no longer visable after WMM download/restart

ST3750528AS HD no longer visable after WMM download/restart

New to the site and hope someone will easily be able to trouble shoot my issue.

Currently running 120G Samsung SSD 840 Series and two ST3750528AS 750G HD, all internal. MY OS is on the SSD. I downloaded Windows Movie Maker and restarted. The restart was really slow, stuck on the "splash??" screen for a couple minutes, then to the windows logo screen. Total restart time was probably around 5-min when it normally takes about 20sec or so. After the start up, I find that my 2nd ST3750528AS HD is no longer showing. Nothing too terribly important was on the 2nd HD, but would be nice to get it back up and running. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks all!

Hello mreschly. Welcome to the forum.

Try unplugging the 2nd ST HD and see if the startup problem clears up.

Afterward, reconnect the drive and check in your BIOS setting to see if it is recognized there.

Then go to the Seagate website and get the Seagate Seatools diagnostic utility and run the hard drive test on that drive.

Do you mean that you installed WMM and then restarted? When I think of 'download' I think of moving a file from the internet onto your computer, not installing a program.
Which hard drive was the file downloaded to?
Where did you get this file from?
