    After plugging a secondary disk to your Windows computer, the primary disk does not appear in the BIOS ( Basic Input / Output System ) or My Computer. This problem may occur even if you do not hit the main disk when you connect the secondary drive . As a remedy, you can try to detach the secondary drive . This method works in some situations and may solve the problem. Persists , connect your main drive to another computer healthy , that same version of Microsoft Windows. Here you can find this drive is not visible in my computer but it shows in Disk Management . The reader may show that the RAW file system and disk space as unallocated whole . In such cases, you should use CHKDSK to fix any damage to the hard drive.
