Why isn’t my hdd working?
I have my newly build pc working. Everything is working correctly however, I can only access the storage on my ssd and not my hdd. I have one connector from the psu going to both the ssd and hdd. Both are also connected to the motherboard separately. I connected my ssd and hdd into a port that had two plugs for which I assumed were ssd and hdd. The only thing I can think of me doing wrong here is that I might have plugged in the hdd into the wrong port. Any other things that might be wrong?
CPU: Ryzen 3.2 ghz
PSU: evga 550 b3
GPU: GeForce Gtx 1060

MB: ASUS ROG Strix B350-F Gaming AM4 ATX Motherboard
CPU cooler: windale 4 120 pwm fan
Fans: aigo halo 120mm led

It won't be recognised until the hard drive is formatted partitioned and assigned a drive letter.
Assuming windows 10
rt click on the start icon
go to disk management.
Your HDD should be listed probably as disk1.
Rt click on disk 1 and follow the partition wizard to create a new simple volume.

Make sure that you have the one that you want to boot from connected right and then you may have to set the other drive as a slave drive.
