Sata hard drive fitting

  armst74 21:29 31 Oct 2004

i bought a 160gb serial ata drive + a usb2.0 + firewire + serial ata card. Installed card no problem but when i connect up the drive system will not start - system finds SATA card and gets to primary drive + well thats it it just stays there. Now if 1 change the drive to the second ata channel it reads primary - no drive found then moves on to secondary + stops again
anybody out there got any ideas?
please excuse my lack of technical no how but fitting this drive was a big step for me!

PS not a problem with the drive cos Maplins kindly replaced the 1st drive just in case!
