Is it recognised in the bios? Have you added the drive in XPs disk management program?

No it's not been recognised in the bios and how do you add a drive in the XP management program

Check the drive for a jumper, sata 1 or 2. your board may not see a sata 2 drive in which case change or remove the jumper to sata 1.

You may need to enter the BIOS and "Enable" SATA

I can't find any ref to Sata in bios

on my a7n8x m/b you need sata drivers and hit f6 during boot up, i think

On some older motherboards with no apparent ref. to sata, try enabling scsi, this has worked before.

There is also no reference to SCSI in the bios, the HD has got no jumpers

The Asus A7N8X does not support SATA drives, are you using a pci SATA controller card? If so which one.

My ASUS is the delux version and it has two sata headers pri and sec,!!
