How do I get Windows to see my new Maxtor 200GB SATA drive on my ASUS K8V SE Deluxe MB, in bios I have enabled the "OnChip SATA Boot Rom" and installed the drive to the Serial ATA connectors (SATA1) on the MB, I have just installed SP2 and still windows does not see my SATA in "My Computer" or "Explore". I have installed the VIA 4 in 1 drivers, PROMISE FastTrak 378 Driver 6420 RAID controller driver Do these drives need some type of formating? John
I downloaded the Maxblaster3 but when I ran it it closed down saying it had encountered a problem!
I previosly installed the Raid controller and Via Raid Tool which shows the drive as controller 0, channel 0, master. I then tried the PowerMax diagnostic tool from maxtor and it did not find the drive! Maybe I should dissable anything to do with RAID?
