Windows 7: add on PCI IDE card...HD's not recognized?!

add on PCI IDE card...HD's not recognized?!


Im new here.....just loaded Windows 7 Ultimate RTM on a spare....test hard drive. I have a second hard drive on the main IDE cable. My two DVD drives are on IDE 2. I installed a PCI card to give two additional IDE ports. Works fine with XP. Windows 7 doesn't show the drives attached to the PCI IDE card. I went into the drive management to see if they were displayed without a drive letter....but they are not listed. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!
