need help with adding ATA harddrive to 2xsata system

Recommended Posts

Thanks for reading this.


My problem is I already have 2 sata hds in raid 0 and I'm trying to add a 300 ata hd but I can't seem to get it to show up in windows xp. It appears in bios.




athlon 64 3000

OCZ EL Platinum Revision 2 1GB (2 x 512MB)

Rosewill RX8XL-256PX Radeon X800XL

2x80 sata raid 0

Ding Ding...good answer since such happens all the time...Most do not look to the hard drive makers FAQ's which have some good reading on adding drives to previously installed o/s's. WD used to have a super FAQ on how to position one of their drives into o/s when all is a previously configured system...




Is the drive formatted at all? You might have to format it outside of windows to NTFS/FAT32 for Disk Management to see it. I'm not sure if Disk Management will see it if it's just a raw drive.
