    You can check if the system sees it in System Profiler. Also, check to see if it is available in Disk Utility. If it is, then reformt it.

    I have my internal drives set as cable selet, so I don't know…maybe you have the pins setup wrong.

    Also, I believe that your system will only see 120gb of the drive. Happened to me, so I put my 160gb in an external.
    I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow.

    Do you have the drive set up to share? If not the Pc won't be able to see it. Other computers will only see what you have set to share.
