Need Help. 1tb Caviar Blue Hard Drive is unreadable


#1

Hello,

I recently purcahsed a western digital 1.0tb Hard Drive from newegg to supplement my raid array.

But no matter what I do the Drive is unreadable by my PC. It’ doesn’t appear in Bios nor in Windows. I tried everything I could find and still nothing. I swapped the sata cables, disconnected all drives but the 1tb, etc etc. and still nothing.

Please help.

My system.

Phenom X4 945 cpu

G.Skill ram 2x4=8gb

GTX 460 1gb

Seagate 250hd x2

Western Digital 500gb storage drive

Caviar hard drives are not recommended for any RAID systems, other than setting up “software” RAID with Caviar Green models.
