I checked the SATA cables and the power cable and both were attatched securely. http://i30.tinypic.com/120qejr.jpg
Im sorry if this is the wrong forum for this, but how do I go about getting my hard drive recognized?
Is the drive a new sata 300 model?
Chances are when your mainboard supports only Sata 150, you have to set the disk to 150, through a jumper.
Sometimes this is printed on the disk, or in the little paper manual that came with the disk.
Most sata disks come without the jumper, so if you have it to select sata 150, you will have to get a jumper from somewhere.
Most computer shop have a few thousand lying around, so you can get them for free.
