Need help with Jbod setup


Wired up a 640 blue to add disk space to my primary velociraptor 300. Can’t get my computer to recognize that there is even a new drive present. Running vista 32. Is disk recognition done thru something in vista or bios or is it supposed to automatically be recognized (doesn’t seem to be…)?

Thanks in advance for any help this noob might get. :smiley:


I hope you’ve solved this by now, but just in case …

Probably need to partition and format the disk in “Disk Management” - at least that’s what it’s called in XP.

To run it (in XP), you first get Computer Management by right-click “My Computer” and choose Manage - or you might find it under Administrative Tools. Disk Management is in the left hand panel.

Or, click Start > Run and type diskmgmt.msc in the Open: line and click OK.

Then, IIRC you right click the long rectangle of the drive, and create partition.
