Just bought a new 3TB WD HDD and connected it to PC (windows 8.1), it was detected by disk management at first and i started initialising it but it stopped in the middle without ever completing.
I restarted my PC and it was not detected. I tried to switch Sata cables between by old/new HDD, my old ones always gets detected no matter which cable im using but the new one doesn't. Did I get a faulty HDD?
