Here is the problem: I got a WD hard drive from a direct TV old DVR, model WD5000AVVS and tried to put it in my PC. Unfortunately, the BIOS and the Windows does not recognize it… The BIOS detects something but I guess it cannot recognize it and shows blank, while an empty SATA shows [AUTO]. Of course that is not the weirdest of all. Some Linux live CDs recognize the drive and I can even format it and work with it. If I only soft restart the PC the BIOS recognizes the hard drive and I even have access to it in Windows but as soon as the power is off, it loose everything and the HDD is unavailable. Any suggestions why is that and how can I fix it.
