My dell is 6 years old and the hard drive is full. I installed a WD 200gig on the same IDE cable setting the original to master and the new one to slave (I only have two IDE cables the other is filled with dvd burner and cd). I changed the bios to auto for primary o and 1. Windows recognized it and installed the driver for it and the drive shows up in divice manager, but not under my computer. I can't figure out to format it as I think that might be the problem?

You need to mark the partition active and format. Quickest route to disk management is right click my computer>manage>storage>disk management. You should see it listed there without an active partition.

You need to CREATE a partition first, and then format a filesystem(NTFS preferrably, or FAT32)

The disk is not present in disk management. DM is good stuff BTW! Learning as I go, but still stuck.

Did you try to Rescan the disks from the Action menu?
