Hello all. I am quite new to Ubuntu and am requesting a bit of help with my new hard drive install. I have built a home theater and I am using this computer as the home theater computer. I installed Ubuntu 12.10 and have liked it so far. I will use the computer to stream media and play it directly to my projector via HDMI. To store all of my media, I just purchased a new Western Digital 1TB Blue Sata hard drive. I installed it but am not able to see if in the file system.
So, my question is, can someone walk me through the process of formatting to the correct Linux file system/ mounting the hard drive properly/ naming it and placing correctly to easily place and access media files? Sorry for such a simple question but after spending hours searching, I have not been able to get it right. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
