hi,

connect one of the hard disk to the SATA converter and you need to install the SATA driver.

enable SATA in the BIOS as well.

Hi,

My set up is I am using the 5 sata mobo plugs which do to 5 sata drive one being a DVD, and the IDE HD is plugged into the IDE port on the mobo.

All the sata's show and are fine and the IDE one shows randomly as well.

I just don't want it to be random, I want it to show all the time in bios and XP.

Thanks

oz
