I just got my new 3TB HDD, but it won't show up in disk management. Though I can find it in BIOS and Device Manager.

I have tried changing cables, with no luck.

OS: Windows 10


 
Hi there Feqzz,

The first thing you can try is to go to your MOBO's website and update all the drivers.(especially the SATA ones)
In case the issue persists, you can boot up Ubuntu from a CD or a flash drive, partition and format the drive and see if the drive would be recognized by Windows when it is already partitioned and formatted.

Hope this will help,
