New sata drive wont show up

Hello. I recently took out the hard drive that was inside my 500gb mybook and put it in my computer, I have 4 sata ports on my motherboard and I go to plug in this hard drive and it wont show up in the bios or anywhere, so I unplugged the cd drive and put the hard drive in and the hard drive works but the cd drive wont work. I have tried everything that I can think of..

Any suggestions? I have an inspiron 531s motherboard inside a new case.

  1. I fixed it, I went into the bios and changed it from "Sata 1" to "Sata 1+2 for anyone who needs to figure this out, that's what you do :)
