Hi people. I have an issue with a new WD Blue 1TB HDD. I recently decided to switch to a SSD+HDD. Apart from a stock SATA slot, i purchased a caddy and replaced my CDROM with it. Then i installed the WD HDD to the caddy and booted up my PC. Now, when Windows starts, i can hear a new device connection notification sound, yet i can't see the HDD in neither File Explorer or Disk Manager. However, the disk is shown on BIOS. The disk is brand new, not initialized, partitioned whatsoever. Straight out the box and into the caddy. Any suggestions to make this piece work for me?
