  1. Have you tried a different IDE cable? Power connections all OK? If they are on the same IDE channel, make sure on is set to Master, the other to Slave, or both set to Cable Select.

    Intel P4 2.4B, MSI 645E Max-U Mobo, 1GB DDR333, ATI R9800PRO 128MB, SB Live 5.1, Samsung 120GB, Maxtor 120GB, LG DVD+-R/RW, WIN2K PRO SP4
  2. Yes. I tried a different cable. Same thing, computer recognizes (found the new hardware) the hardware but there is still conflict icon in device manager and Hard Drive doesnt see either one of them. Ive looked for latest drivers...nothing. Someone please help. Thanks.
  3. So Device Manager in windows picks them up but won't let you use them? Does your BIOS detect them?

    What motherboard do you have? This is two drives, or just one? Have you tried only using one drive at a time, and booting to see what happens? Maybe even try plugging a CD-Rom in on the same cable as the boot drive, and see what happens.
