I have the Striker II NSE and have two SATA 500GB 7200RPM Barracuda hard drives stripped (Sata 1 & 2) for my main hard drive. I just bought a SATA 1TB 7200RPM Barracuda and plugged it in (Sata 3). In Device Manager it recognizes the 1TB hard drive but won’t show it in My Computer. Is there a Setting I am missing? I am Running windows vista 64-bit. I have tried making the 1TB a new RAID setting, another SATA connection, and tried updating Bios. Any advice on how to get it to show C: Drive as RAID 0 (two 500GB) and D: Drive my 1TB Hard Drive in Windows? I want to use it as Storage.

did you go into disk management and format the new drive? you need to do this before it will show in my computer

Ok, I didn't check if it was in disk management. I do remember I went in disk management and saw the 2 stripped 500Gb drives and the DVD-DL Burners. I will try that tonight just to make sure that is correct. Worst case senario is it doesn't show up there, then what?
