years ago i could install a new hd as a slave with no probs, now after turning grey, i seem to have lost my touch lol.
opened case, physically installed drive after setting the pins to slave.
when i go to "my computer" it doesnt show. when i go to device manager, it appears as "wdc wd1600sb-01rfao" this is the recently installed drive, i know its only a small drive but why throw it away when you can reuse it eh.
my computer cant find it and i cant see it and therefore cant use it, it also has some of my daughters old work on it , its not desperate but of course if i cant solve where i went wrong then i cant install a bigger hd at a later date.
many thanks to those who can help, yes it does appear in the bios (i forgot to say) as a slave
