Hello, I just received a few days ago my first 3TB drive. It’s a Caviar Green WD30EZRX. My motherboard is a Asrock 970 Extreme4 updated to last firmware (2.00 2012/08/30) and I’m using Windows 7 64bit.
The thing is that I never had a 3TB drive and I don’t have any other computer to try it. But it just doesn’t seems to work. The BIOS (well, it’s a EFI) detects all my other disks and even I can plug and unplug they and they are detected at the moment but the 3TB isn’t there. Of course if BIOS don’t detect it Windows can’t do nothing with it. Is there any thing that I can try before just thinking that the disk is dead?
EDIT: Also the disk is connected using SATA1 cables, don’t know if the disk NEEDs to have SATA3 cables to work
