  1. ok i just bought this hdd today and put it in my computer it is detecting it in the bios and in devices, i downloaded the driver for it but it wont show up in my computer

    how do i fix this!

    btw i have windows 7.

    ok just opened up disk management and got it to intialize however, still now showing up

    this is what im seeing

    it only shows the c driver in the window
    however at the botton of the window it shows the seagate drive, it is black and says unallocated

    when i right click on it it says

    convert to dynamic disk
    convert to gpt disk
