Sata/scsi Problem!

  1. Hey guys, big problem. Well, for me it is. I've got a 200GB SATA drive. Connected to a SATA card in a PCI slot. BIOS reads the card, and detects the drive. Great! Load Windows - nothing. Device manager shows the host card under "SCSI and RAID controllers" as working properly, and it even shows the drive too under "Disk Drive" (as a SCSI device). But in "MY COMPUTER" there's no drive! I'm running Windows XP Pro and have all the updates, have updated my BIOS and Firmware on everything, all the latest drivers, yada yada yada. Any ideas?

    Have you partitioned and formatted the drive?

    I can't get to it to partition it.

    Have you tried to do this in 'Disk Manager'?

    Nope! lol. The one thing I forgot! I did it and it's working! For a second I was thinking it was just a bad hard drive and would have to fight w/ Customer Service / Tech Support. Thanks for the help!
