So do you mean you have attached it to the computer but now it is not showing or that you don't know how to attach it to the computer?
IS it a new HDD? also what is teh model of the HDD?
Can you see the HDD in BIOS?
Now as far as i can remeber that board has SATA not SATA II, so if your HDD is SATA II you will need to limit it to SATA 1. The other thing you may have to do is to initialize the HDD. Go to start, then right clikc on my computer >manage, then diskmanagement and see if you can se ethe HDD there, if it is then right click and format.
It's is attached already and the bios or the system wont recognize it.... It is an Hitachi Deskstar HDT725050VLA360Its an 3.0Gb/s.. How do I limit it to SATA I
I have tried all for ports and have even updated my bios.. It poswers up and spins, but still not regognized... And I don't want to format it It hold all of my music, movies and other files... It is going to be like a slave drive..
Usually there is a jumper on the HDD which will control the SATA mode. You will have to look see if it tells you on the HDD, if not, you will have to find the manual or look on the net.
Yeah there are no jumpers on this.. Will have to check Hitachi's site and find the specs on this HDD... Thanks for the help
