    Got myself a SATA Harddisk today (200GB Maxtor).
    Installed it into the computer, followed the steps (installing drivers
    etc...) from the manual but WinXP doesn't show the drive in Windows
    Explorer.

    It shows up on boot in the BIOS
    It shows up in the Device Manager under Windows XP.

    But it doesn't show up in Explorer. I guess it must be formatted first (like
    IDE drives) but how do i do that since it's not listed as drive in Explorer?
