I am new in the forum I hope someone can help me
I add a 2nd HDD to my lenovo W530 (Intel Core i7 3630QM CPU @2.4GHz, Windows 7 64bits) in the ultrabay
I used the caddy (TheNatural2020)
And the HDD is Hitachi 1Tb, 5400rpm Model HTS541010A9680
The BIOS detect the HDD but in windows it doesnt appear (explorer)
I ran a hardware test with Lenovo Solution Center and after the the test, the" SMART Drive Self Test " has a warning, the code of the error is: WHD01V000-UK9V0D
It seems I am close to make it work but I dont know whats next
Please any help will be great!

I am assuming the hard drive is new...? (Read further on if it already contains data)
Regardless of whether the hard disk is old or new, check if the hard disk exists in the device manager. If there are any X or ! signs beside the device there is an issue, post a link to the screenshot.
If the disk is new, you need to initialise and create partitions in it before it will show up in explorer.
To do this, press the Windows Key and R key at the same time. This will open up the run window.
Type in the following command:
And press enter. If there is a UAC prompt allow it to proceed.
Right click on the new disk, and click 'Initialise Disk'.
Once the disk is initialised, create partitions and follow the on-screen prompts... that should be self explanatory. If you really still need help on that just ask here.
If the disk is old, and has data in it:
Check if the hard disk exists in the device manager. If there are any X or ! signs beside the device, there is an issue. Post a link to the screenshot.
Also, are you sure the multibay holder you purchased is a genuine Lenovo product? I have never seen that SMART error come out before... you might not be using the official, but rather a 3rd party one. I will leave this to the mods to judge, though.
