  1. This on a Windows machine? Go to disk management, the WD probably isn't partitioned and assigned a letter yet, you can do that there.

    Hi there ItsPuck,

    So the SSD is your primary drive while the HDD should be your secondary right? It would be nice if you post a screenshot of Disk Management. Just upload the screenshot to an image hosting website and post the link.

    Most probably, you are using only your SSD. As why_wolf suggested, you will need to Initialize -> Partition and format the drive.
