Is this a 2nd hdd added into the system or a new primary replacing a hdd that you removed? If it is an additional hdd you will have to enable it in system bios & then format & partition it before you will be able to use it. Hope this helps.

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Few steps to check your harddisk status on the motherboard would resolve this issue. Checkin to the cmos setup and look for the detection of the HDD and the size it shows once you have done a formating.

Vista 64 bit shows issues at times while installing a new SATA 1TB HDD. Check if the 1TB HDD is installed on to SATA 0.

Use a WD Disk Manager and format the HDD initially and then try install Vista on to it. Else if this doesnt work on the system, Put the HD on to another working system and Format it with NTFS File system and try installing Vista.. You will be successful. Good Luck.

I cannot configure a SATA RAID 1 to mirror two WD HDD 1 TB


You sure you installed the ASUS RAID drivers when you installed Windows? Ya need to get the drivers off the ASUS disk, transfer them to a floppy, hit F6 when windows tells you to (during windows install...you only have a second or 2 to see the message!)) and use the floppy to install them. Might take a few tries to get it right.

SOYO KT600 Dragon Plus mobo not recognize WD Caviar SATA 1TB HDD


Yuck! Soyo filed for bankruptcy in May and their website is gone!
You need to enable the SATA in the rom bios AND install the drivers for it; but, I hope you have the manual and the CD.

Presario Media Center new SATA 320GB WD


Check to make sure you used a SATA hdd & not a SATA II hdd for your replacement. Usually these are not backwards compatible. Hope this helps.
