    Strange problem - probably with RAID

    Hello

    I've bought 1TB external USB HDD (like this http://www.pixmania.com/pl/pl/111194...netrzny-3.html but 1 TB not 2 TB). After some time some problems with connection to my PC occured and I thought that the only solution is to check HDD connecting internaly in PC. After I opened this device I saw yhat in fact there are 2 HDDs inside (each 500GB).
    I decided to keep them separately, I placed first in PC and PC still saw it as 1TB wgich was strange because in fact it had 500GB. I formatted it and now it works and PC sees it as 500 GB.

    Problem is with second disk. PC doesnt see it at all. I cannot format it.
    Please help.

    I attached disk info and photo of the external HDD after I removed the disks.

    Best Regards

    Welcome to HWV

    The first picture clearly says its a WD500 gig drive.

    Yes it is WD500 gig drive. I have 2 such drives. One is working fine and second is not seen by PC. And this is the problem. How can I format it when PC doesnt see it?

    Does the BIOS see it?

    Are you only looking in Windows to look for it? If so, try going to disk management and see if it is there-control panel/administrative tools/computer management/disk management.
