Ok heres the thing, I have my normal 80 gig IDE hard drive. I have 2 sata ports on the motherboard. I have a a 20 gig sata hard drive brand new. I plug the sata cable in and the sata power in. Wheni go into the bios. under sata primary 1 only options are Off / Auto, So i set it to AUTO. boot up to windows ( which is on the IDE hard drive ) but windows dont see the sata drive. There is data and pictures on it. Thats all i want it for is a second drive. anyone know why windows wont see the sata drive? Thanks guys!
