I recently purchased a 500GB ATA hard drive from newegg. It's a seagate brand. I think I have correctly set the jumper pins to make it a slave, and my bios has put it as primary slave. it also sees it as a 500,000some MB drive. The last slave I had was a 160GB which made a 120 partition and a 40 partition , I don't remember if this was my only option. I took that one out and put the 500GB in it's place. The master is an 80GB hard drive that's running right now. I am running windows XP Professional 2002 and when I booted it up it seemed to see and recognize a new hard drive but theres no new drive letter for me to format. Any suggestions? Thanks.
