hello guys and gals, i would like to add two 40 gb hdd's on the secondary ide channel (the first having the same configuration) , however whenever i install the drives there are not shown in my computer (xp pro) but are listed in the bios and device manager with a healthy status. I understand that you can have up to four ide drives on the channels so why does my computer not show any signs of them dispite the reports from the bios and device manager, p.s. I have a pci ide card installed with my dvd-rw, cd-rw and cd-rom. Tried almost every array you can think of with the same reults! can anyone help ?
