Now I connected:
- 1 WD Black Caviar coming from another PC and loaded with data.
- 1 Hitachi Desktar 1TB also loaded withy data and coming from another PC
None of them are being recognized by the software. They dont "exist".
Additionally I am also trying to add a brand new empty SSD Sata 6Gbps which is also NOT BEING recognized by the PC.
Do I have to do anything special to make those disks recognizable by the windows software installed on the Sata II(3Gbps) original SSD?
I would appreciate knowledgeable contributions.
Thank you kindly.
You will most likely have to import them under Computer Management -> Disk Management
Be warned tho it import them as Dynamic Disks which is best to convert back to a Basic Disk but will require formatting.
