  1. Hi,
    I installed a new HD as a secondary, it's been recognised by windows but its not showing up in my computer, no errors in the device manager but in the properties under volumes it says status: Not initialized.
    Do i have to format the drive 1st? or am i just missing something??
    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes you need to format the drive from Disk Manager.(just right click on the disk format)
