I have a lot of external USB2.0 hard drives to house my dvd collection. I just got a new computer and all of these still work well with it. The problem is my new 250GB SATA hard drive I just bought. I cant get the computer to recognize it. There is a slot for an internal SATA drive so it should work fine. I bought a SATA data cable and hooked it into the motherboard right next to the one that came with the computer (there are 3 extra open slots). I then plugged in the proper SATA power cable. When I turn it on I get no errors, but it doesnt recognize it either..not in MY COMPUTER or in the DISK MANAGEMENT section of the CONTROL PANEL. I tried to go into my BIOS to see if there's anything there, but my keyboard is wireless optical so it wont even let me press F2 to get into the setup..(I dont think it loads up until Windows starts?). Is this what I need to do? Will this solve my problem if I get a regular wired keyboard? Is there a setting in the BIOS to have it recognize the SATA drive? Or is there a problem with the way I connected it? Any help would be great...THANKS!
