You have to format it first. Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management (make sure you open this up as an admin) -> Storage -> Disk Management (Local). Your disk will be listed there, just right click on it and format it.

Thank you for your advice.
Yes. That has already been done. Formatted to the NTFS default setting. And it does show the disc there in the Device Manager,, but not when I check start>computer>properties, still fails to show the 2tb , nor can I download anything to that 2tb HDD as win7 does not see it.

I do thank you though for your advice.
