I installed a WD SATA 160gb HD into my computer. Windows can't find it, and its hooked up to the other drive which is receiving power from the SATA power cable that I hooked it up to.


What's weird is that the drive that its sharing power with is 1/2 of my RAID0 configuration, which Im typing to you now on - so obviously the other drive is seen by the RAID controller and is receiving power.


Any ideas on where this drive is? It's POSSIBLY being seen by Windows, which sees a "WDC WD16 00AAJS-OOPSA SCSI Disk Device" in the Disk Drives section of Device manager. This IS a 160 gig HD, though it's not SCSI, it's just regular old SATA. It also sees the NVIDIA STRIPE at 279.47G, so it sees the RAID0 configuration.


No matter what, it doesn't pop up in Windows Explorer.


It's not a SCSI drive...


Thoughts?

OK, this is a Vista Issue.


In case someone ever searches and has this issue it is solved by doing this in Vista:


Start


Right click on computer


left click on manage


Double click on storage


Double click on Disk Management


You will see your "SCSI" volume as unallocated space, format it and voila!
