Hi, I have installed an 'ASUS U3S6' card to use with a '1TB WD SATA6Gb/s' hdd, (pc setup below), everything is installed and drivers are all current (i have tried the beta driver as well) I plugged in a usb2.0 flash drive in the usb3.0 ports and it works fine,

the hdd is showing up in 'Device Manager', under the 'Volumes' tab:
'Disk' reads 'Disk 2'
'Type' reads 'Unknown'
'Status' reads 'Not Initialized'
'Partition Style' reads 'Not Applicable'
'Capacity' reads 953870 MB
'Unallocated Space' reads 0 MB
'Reserved Space' reads 0 MB

but the drive isn't showing up anywhere else, any ideas?

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

my system is:

Gigabyte EP45-UD3P
