    win10 cannot see a hard drive added in.

    had a hard drive problem so took it out of that machine and added it into mine so's i could run seatools on it.

    but it doesn't appear in the list.

    how can i get win10 to see it? i had a thing like this once before but i've forgotten the procedure...

    Difficult to say without more details, it could be the same fault it had in the other PC. A screenshot of your Disk Manager would help diagnosis...

    Well here's a screenshot of the disk manager. It is not there. So I've attached a shot of the seatools screen. It doesn't find it either.

    There's an expansion seagate. That's not it.

    And there's another seagate on the seatools screen. That's the C: drive really. Wrong serial number for this missing drive which should be Z9AC3393

    it could be my sata ports, I guess? I've tried it in two different ones. On my next shutdown I might pull an existing drive and try this one in that known good port.
