Internal Harddrive

Hey, i just installed windows 7. I've been using this Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB for about 1 month. have about 400GBs utorrent files and need the seed, anyway so the problem i have is that i can't se my harddrive in the explorer. and when i go to Harddrive management i have my 1st and my 2nd drive, then there is a third that should be the 1TB's drive. but there is no size showing or anything at all. and it says that it's a Dynamic Drive. an the others are Basics then.....

So what do i do? geeks, hello? :P haha..

Pre-TY.

Is it saying offline in the disk area? If so in diskmanagement right click in the area to the left where it says the disk is offline and select online. Aso have you assigned a drive letter for it? Right click the area to the right and select change drive letters and path.

it is not saying offline it just says Dynamic. I'm not at home right now, i will try that about the drive letters and path. If not you know any other thing that could cause this prob? i mean i have been using the drive for a month on windows xp. then yesterday i formated the system drive (not the one with probs) and installed win 7. then this happend. When i first installed the drive i hade problems with it. but then i just needed to format the drive then it worked....

TY. Will try that, comming back today with the results.

What is harddrive/RAM doing???
Very often when I wake up my computer, for a good 5 minutes the harddrive goes completely bozo and the system is extremely unresponsive since (I guess) it is in the process of waking up - in addition, when I look at task manager (even when observing "Show processes from all users") the majority of...
