secondary SATA hard drive doesn't show up in J115

I've a Lenovo J115 738726u which is installed Windows XP. I installed a secondary SATA hard drive (Western Digital WDBAAX3200ENC-NRSN). The new installed HDD is not shown up as hard disk in file explorer. But In control panel->system->device manager, I'm able to see the new hard disk in the 'Disk Drive'.


Does anyone has idea what's required to solve the problem?


Thanks a lot.

Re: secondary SATA hard drive doesn't show up in J115

Good day and welcome to the community.


If I'm not mistaken, you'll need to create a partition on the drive before Windows Explorer will see it. You can create a partition from within Disk Management. Right-click My Computer and select Manage from the pop-up.


Hope this helps.
