Windows 7: Sata Drive Not Detected By Windows 7

Sata Drive Not Detected By Windows 7

Hey there,

I recently bought two new sata3 drives and set them up in a raid stripe and installed Windows 7, all work fine.
I added an older sata2 drive, it shows in the bios but Windows 7 cant see the drive.. not in disc management or device manager...

I had a similar problem with my other sata2 drive but that one showed up in device manager as a 'scsi' and after a few reboots suddenly showed up in disc man. but after disconnecting that to try the other drive its now got the same problem.

any ideas??

Are you connecting the sata2 drive to sata2 drive port on the mobo?
