I've bouught a sata drive and have attempted to install it in my comp. Got it in the bay and connected the power cable / motherboard connector / drive end. Physically it went in great and everything is solid but I am getting some funny results.
In device manager it shows up in the disk drives section which is cool.
But when I go to START -> Computer, it shows up under 'DVD WR Drive' and bumps my actual DVD Drive down the list and changes it's name to an unknown 'BD-ROM Drive'.
I can't figure out why it's not a hard drive.
The BIOS reads:
IDE Channel 0 Master[WDC WD2500AAKS - 00FOA] Op System HDrive
IDE Channel 0 Slave[Samsung HD1035J] New 1TB HDrive
IDE Channel 1 Master[TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S] DVD
IDE Channel 1 Slave[None]
Has anyone had this problem? Do you know what I could do?
(( I have now gone further and removed the power and data cable from the DVD drive and motherboard. This does not solve the problem however as the hard drive shows back up as a DVD and not hard drive.
Can anyone help???
