    Is this a new drive? Is it partitioned and does it have any file systems? Trying to mount from the cli will most likely give you more useful error messages.

    are you sure you actually installed it to your hard drive?
    and you have 2 physical drives in there?
    anyhow, you might want to open a terminal and enter these commands:
    sudo fdisk -l
    and post the complete output here.

    This appears to be true its just strange in my opinion indeed the hard drive is showing as the 500gb drive.

    That's how the Cinnamon "Computer" window works. You cannot access what appears to be your internal hard disk as that icon represents the whole device itself, not the Linux filesystem contained in a partition on it.

    Clicking on File System will access the files on your internal hard disk.

    Heres the screenshot of fdisk cmd.

    you can mark this solved.

    there's just one hard drive, and everything in one big partition.
    if you can access "File System" (first screenshot), then everything is ok.

    it would have been enough to copy-paste the output, using code tags.
    no need to post a screenshot. waste of bandwidth really.
