I just bought a new barebones XFX kit from TigerDirect. It's all put together and running XP Home.
The computer came w/ a SATA HD. I added an IDE HD and an IDE DVD R/W. (There is one IDE slot on the MB.)
The BIOS Setup and Control Panel>System>Hardware both see both HDs and the DVD.
"My Computer" shows the SATA HD and the DVD, but doesn't see the IDE HD. I have swapped the jumpers on the IDE devices so that, at one time or another, the DVD was Master or the HD was Master. This didn't change the problem.
I installed HD Health and it shows both HDs as being "Excellent".
Has anyone run into this problem before?
What's going on, here?
Choices have consequences.
