i have a brand new Mac Pro, system 10.9. I took two Seagate internal hard drives from my old Mac Pro system 10.7 and installed them into the new computer. They don't show up on the desktop and are vital to my recording studio. What do I do?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
