I’ve just bought a WD20EARX as a second drive to my SAMSUNG SP2504C which is now very full.
They are both connected to a ASUS M4A78LT-M LE board (BIOS updated today).
When I installed the WD drive it was seen by Windows 7, installed, formatted and happy.
I started to move a few files over to the WD drive and transfer slowed to a snail pace, so I cancelled the transfer.
After a system reset the new WD drive isnt seen by BIOS.
I have tried all the swaps suggested (power cables, SATA leads, SATA sockets, PC’s etc) no way anything sees this new drive.
SATA controller in BIOS is set to 1-4 IDE, 5-6 IDE.
Anyone have any last suggestions before I return the drive and look a muppet for missing something simple?
Thanks in advance.
