|I have a Western Digital Sata drive and am trying to add an old Seagate IDE drive. I am using cables to convert from IDE to Sata so I can plug it in to the Sata port on the mother board and power supply. The new Sata one will remain the master.|
The IDE drive spins when switched on and Windows loads up (but far slower than before, with a small graphical problem when trying to display the windows flag as it boots), but the drive is not recognised. When I look at the BIOS settings prior to Windows booting up the computer is not even recognising the IDE drive exists.
I have had some previous suggestions, but none worked as yet.
