    did u install drivers

    wiondows xp and windows 2000 gives an option of installing drivers before installation use this or install if u have ide drive also use it to boot (install in that drive) and then install the sata drive.

    Did you format the drive yet ? ?
    If not Explorer won't recognise it. The BIOS and Device manager tell me the drivers are properly installed.
