I had a hard drive failure and bought a new Segate SATA Internal Hard Drive. As you can see it works fine. But I cannot get my second Western Digitial EIDE Hard Drive recognized. It has no oeprating system just ALL my personal files and stuff. I have tried every configuration I can think of with no luck. Any help greatelt appreciated!!
I see your quandry. Leave your dvdrom drive out for the time being. Boot your system up, you should be able to then go to my computer, and see your old hard drive. Open it up, copy your old files that you need (songs, pictures, documents...) to your new drive. After your sure that you have all your files, shut down, remove the old drive and hook your dvdrom drive back up, boot as normal and you're good.
