  1. Hello, I've just joined in the hope I can get some help for a problem I'm having. I've recently installed a second hard drive on my computer. After some time I managed to get the hd to show when booting up. But when I go to 'my computer' It's not showing up at all. In order to install the second hd I replaced my zip drive which was 'I assume' the slave to my hd initially. The zip drive didn't have any jumpers on the back which I found odd as I thought being on the same ide cable one drive had to be a master 'my hard drive' and the zip drive being the 'slave'. Anyway, its worked fine. So can anyone help me out?
