SATA 1.5 2TB Hard Drive not showing up in Asus P8Z8-V Pro BIOS

I plugged my sata 1.5gb/s hard drive into my motherboard and it won't show up in the BIOS. I'm 90% sure I plugged it in properly; it's plugged into the Intel SATA 3gb/s port and the power is also plugged in. What's wrong here?

  1. Broken drive? Can you try it on another motherboard? Did it work yesterday, on the same mobo?

    Some few motherboards require that each port be activated in BIOS before a drive on it can be used, but that's usually Dell motherboards.
  2. I should add that it's from an external hard drive. I put it back in its enclosure and it works fine. It just doesn't work when I plug it into the mobo and psu.
  3. Now that is unusual. Let me know if you find the answer.
  4. What is device manager and computer management showing?
