I have installed a new HD into one of our (2 year old-XP) gaming machines here, and since it is a SATA, I installed a SATA adaptor into a PCI slot. I hooked up the SATA cable from adaptor to drive, and all the appropriate power connectors. I installed the drivers, but I can't see the new drive in "My Computer". The CD had RAID software which put some icon on the Task Bar, and when I click on that, it sees the drive in all its glory, but I can't configure it at all. I don't even want a "RAID" arrangement, just to use the new drive as an additional drive for more storage.
BTW, when I go into "SETUP", I can't change the setting for "Primary SATA drive".
Also, there is a ribbon cable type connector on the SATA adaptor. Does this have to get connected? I hope not since the reason I needed it in the first place was due to not having anymore IDE resources.
Can someone point me in the right direction here?
