SATA drives with ATAs

  1. All four of my IDE connectors are in use - two HD and two DVDs. MY mobo (Asus A7n8X deluxe) will take SATA, so I bought an OEM drive and tried to set up. Problem is, I don't see anything at boot, and I don't see the drive when i go into BIOS.

    Any suggestions?

    did you load the MB drivers for the controller
    check in (right click ) my computer manage,disk management
    you may see it there and just format
    if its new drive it may have come with setup disc
