    Having a "blonde" moment here.

    I've installed a new hard drive as a slave and my pc recognises it's there, but how do I initialise it?
    Do I have to partition it or something so that I can put files on it?

    (it's a completely blank h/d)

    Right click on My Computer and click MANAGE then go down to DISK MANAGEMENT and format the drive with NTFS file system.

    You have to format the drive.
    Go to Administrative Tools> Computer Management> click on the new drive and format.

    Thanks guys, I now have 120gb of free space.
    Can't wait for my 4mb Bulldog line to go active next week so I can hammer the dvd's on EliteTorrents!
