Hello,

Try this 1.

Check your connections once again.

Try connecting it by removing the jumpers from the IDE harddisk.

Good Luck.
ok mate will try and get back to you thanks

I'm having the same problem. I am using win7ult.
I bought two different brands fzx5003(c) and a jp103-20330 but neither one will work. the red light comes on but windows does not recognize it.
i thought sata was hot-swappable? or does sata need a reboot?

these drives work ok with my ide to usb converter. I have 4 empty sata slots on my motherboard and want to use them.

any idea on where to find the drivers?
I plugged the FZX5003 into the ide hard drive WD40gb and left all the master/slave/CS jumpers off it so it is then just master with no slave. (master is for when you have a slave on WD drives). Added power cables, plugged sata cable in jack farthest from pwr jack, and set bios to detect sata drives. The bios detected the WD ide drive no problem. Loaded XP on a mobo that has only one ide port for the cdrom, and the rest are all sata ports , 6 of them..
