hello IT guru's I am running on a foxconn 945 (PLAC) which should support 4 sata drives. I just bought a new seagate 320GB sata drive, same as my old drive, so now i have two. Now i thought these sata drives were meant to just work magically but i guess i have to do something here. Windows recognises the drive and says the device is working properly, the problem is that in 'my computer' it comes up as a dvd drive. (ie please insert disk when clicked). In the drives properties when i go volumes -> populate, its type is unknown, and it has no volume (letter). Im not sure about this whole RAID thing, in my bios the sata controller is set to "enhanced"... i tried "sata only" but that didnt help, and i noticed that is said ports 2 and 4 nearby in one of the nearby sata options. so i tried using different sata ports on the mobo but it didnt change anything, i think that both drives are set as IDE masters in the bios which confuses me as i though there were no master/slaves with sata. My old drive has always been in the 4th(bottom) port and i tried the new one in the other three ports. I cant remember where/how you populate the drive, give it a letter and name, i only remember these options coming up in windows installs. i think i must be really dumb, memory skills -2 I dont want any fancy setup just two seperate drives so i have 600gb total I do a lot of video editing, and i need these drives up asap, so any help would be massively rewarded with praise. on a related note i was wondering if anyone knows the speed of video editing on one of those external-hot-swap-sata-cases-via-usb2 is like, is the speeds the same as an internal sata drive? even if the speeds are okay, video is a bit tricky, like how firewire is better than USB2 for capturing, so does this affect things? thanks!
