SATA or PATA? If it's PATA, did you make sure the master/slave jumper was set correctly before you installed it? And I assume this drive is a replacement for another drive...what was the problem with the old drive?

Sounds like you don't have the motherboard chip set drivers installed.

What is the model of your computer or motherboard?
