Hey guys, having a hard drive issue. In a previous rig, I had 2 Hard drives, a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 320GB Drive, and a 1.5TB drive. I switched graphics card, and then a new PSU to support it. With this new PSU, the second hard drive wouldn't work. I would turn on the computer, and it would post, both drives would show up in BIOS no problem. I bought a thermaltake blackx base to sit the 1.5TB drive in, plugged it in the eSATA port, and everything worked just dandy. However, that base failed a few days ago. I bought a new PSU, Thermaltake 750w, but the same problem. I tried putting both hard drives on a single cable, seperate cables, molex to SATA power converter, but no matter how i configure it, even w/ slave/Master sata plugs, I cannot get the computer to boot with both drives plugged in. I ran the Seagate diagnostic on both drives, [had to do it seperately, with one unplugged, followed by the second.] Both passed with flying colors. [Long Test]. When both drives were plugged in, it detected both, but could not run tests on the DATA drive, saying it was not responding to commands. Ideas?
Thanks in advance.
