xps 8300 recognizes second hard drive as foreign

April 19, 2012 at 17:44:47
Specs: Windows 7
Removed SATA hard drive from old xps 410. Was only used as storage for pictures. Physically installed in new xps 8300, all cables connected, rebooted, went to setup checked to see if SATA port was turned on in BIOS...even saw the drive description listed correctly (western dig)...but can't see it in windows explorer. Tried to go through drive manager, it listed it as drive 1 "foreign"...

any advice?

Figured it out. In disk manager I finally found "Import Foreign disk"...worked and I can see all my pictures in windows explorer.
