Hello, i had windows xp 32 bit and i installed win 7 64 bit, but how can i detect 500GB HDD? I got 2 HDD's one from 2005 its 80GB and it works perfect and one of 500GB(its Seagate 7200rpm) So on new windows 7 it doesn't show it and i can't enter files on it. I got lots of games there and important stuff. My windows 7 is installed on 80GB HDD and like i said i can't see one of 500GB. So the question is how can i see 500GB HDD and get access to all that files without deleting them? Thanks

Check if you have any exclamation marks in Device Manager (right click Computer, Properties, Device Manager)

Also what motherboard do you have?

C: Healthy(Boot,Page File,Crash Dump,Primary Partition) 76GB thats the one win 7 is in
E: Healthy(Active,primary partition) flash drive of 16GB
HDD(name of that drive) Healthy(System,Active,primary partition 465GB
