Old ATA drivers on Asus P6T (regular)

  1. Hi, I recently installed my two old ATA drivers into my case. Right now, I am unable to have my motherboard detect the two old ATA's. I have one ATA as old as 5-6 years (from around 2003) and the other being from 2005 and up. I have a regular (NOT DELUXE) ASUS P6T X58, and I have connected everything: the power supply to the ATA drives; and the IDE cable to the drives. I have set my jumpers around many many many times such as making both cable, both masters, one master and one slave etc. Everything else doesn't seem to work at all, and my drives are being undetected. Can anyone help out? As always, help is always appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Go to bios, should be an option in onboard devices so that your mobo actually uses ATA interface.
