Did you try the 1.5/3.0 jumper on the drive?

yep that jumper is worth a shot, only takes a sec, and a few older boards had firmware bugs that was supposed to support 3.0 but didnt. I happen to own one of those boards
Anyway since I dont know what board you have, is there a place in the bios 'specify' whats attached to a particular controller. For example on some boards you can select CD/DVDROM, Hard Drive etc on a particular controller or set it to 'auto' if its set manullay to CD drive, and you connect a hrd drive to it, it could have a problem, so check that.
The beeping are diagnostic codes. They come from the mainboard not the drive, listen to the codes and the pattern, write this down and check your manual it should show the beep codes in it. If it doesnt look at some generic codes they are usually the all the same.
Also you may have to setup something in your ATA utility (if any) once again I cant say because I dont know what hardware your using.

if the seagate utility cant see the drive then bios controller isnt configured correctly, it the ATA controller is onboard the it would be the boards utility. Some boards like a via board I have have a seperate bios setup for the sata stuff. lemme look at the specs.
sorry I hadnt noticed the MB model in your original post. A couple of stupid things to double check. Make sure you have power connected to the drive, and the data cable is plugged into the board and the drive. Hey, its happened to everyone, so its worth checking. Also, make sure the drive is spinning up. Turn off other stuff if you cant hear it. I'm assumming the 1.5/3.0 jumper didnt help things. those bugs were on just a few older boards anyway. Try switching it out on the other ata port, also try it without the dvd drive connected.
Another thing, when it didnt boot that time. sometimes the bios goes to default values. Make sure they are enabled in the raid config in your bios.
Also I just noticed another thing. You said that you were running to IDE drives and two ata burners, yet you had to unplug one burner to install the ata drive. You manual shows you have 4 ata connectors.
The only other things I can think of are, the disk may be to large for the bios version or disk management software. 2 TB is fairly new for a board thats a few years old.

I hope you all burn in the eternal hellfire. I asked a question here once, and got zero replies. Someone else posted a question twenty minutes later and within ten minutes had SIX replies. I will say a special prayer to Jesus tonight regarding your souls. You horrible slime. May the gods rain a plague down upon this website and all who enter it. I have sent an e-mail to Al Gore concerning this terrible waste of his second greatest achievement, after that classic of cinema "An Inconvenient Truth." With any luck, this website will be shut down within the hour. I hope you all enjoy using your precious website in these, its final moments. You should have heeded braves157's warning. You fools have brought this upon yourselves.

You hijacked someone else's topic and didn't really ask a straight forward question
I asked a question here once,

Well...I would not buy a motherboard...when I have never established that any computer can see/use the drive.
If I had established that...then I might consider your situation a possible MB problem.
You never indicated (or maybe I didn't notice) just what the BIOS beeps are indicating. Seems to me that was an important clue.
