I have physically installed the hdd but my computer is not reading it. Its tracking my ssd though. I have double checked the cables but still nothing. Anyone know whats going on?

You can also check the HDD manufacturer's website for instructions on installation process.

if you just installed it and your comp was running before go into disk management and format it

Did you format it in Computer management and does it also show up in your bios? And the reason your ssd might be detected is because you probably installed your operating system on there so the drive is formatted automatically. Let me know f you need any other help!
