ok I plugged in all the connectors toand from HDD and went to BIOS and turned on the SATA and it said it was unknown. I dunno why it dont work. I am new at this SATA stuff. I dont want it to be as primary since I have one already. Any one know what the prob is? hope its not dead since is brand new like month old and it was sealed in package.
Where does it say that the drive is unknown, the BIOS or within windows?
For windows: When you install a new drive, you must go to disk management (right click on 'My Computer' and select 'Manage'). From there, you must activate, partition, and format the hard drive.
For BIOS: The drive you selected is a SATA 3.0GB/s drive and your SATA ports may only support SATA 1.5GB/s. You may need to set up your drive with a jumper or some other setting so that it is operating in SATA 1.5GB/s mode.
