Hi all.... now where to start - bought an Hitachi Deskstar 7k250 SATA drive - only wanted it as a storage drive - mounted it, wired it in, all ok but under 'My Computer' does not show!! Drive does show in Device Mger under 'Disk Drives' and in the Bios (but not under SATA) and using VIA RAID Tool but not as a Local Drive!!! Have got two IDE drives installed.

Searched high 'n' low for the reason but found nothing!

My system setup is as follows:

Asrock K7VT4APro M/Board
Win XP Home SP2

Any help would be BIG time appreciated!!!

Cheers

Hi linderman,

Two quick things.

First of all, great link, I had not come across that one.

Second, you are telling your age, because many of us were not born yet when quoting you, "I can remember not long ago a P-133mhz with a 750 mb drive was a monster system !!!! WOW"......gulp, cough, choking, cough,......aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!....well, maybe some on here weren't!
