Slapped in a brand new 3TB Barracuda and nothing is showing up. Running two Barracudas as I type this so I have the drivers. Do I have too many drives? Win 7.

2 SSD's (120gig + 90gig)
2 HD's (2TB + 2TB)

Did you format it in Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Storage?

Ok, so BIOS does see it AND Windows sees it. Newest drivers and everything BUT.......doesn't show up in My Computer. Just the previous 4 drives, not the new 5th. HELP............

Just read your reply. Went there and it does not show the drive I just plugged in, even after restart.

Wait, where u said to go DOES see it. Didn't realize they made my C drive the 0 drive so #4 drive is really 5th drive. Got it, now what? Don't see format option.
