Question about Western Digital Caviar SE16 (WD5000AAKS) 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
I installed a new drive yesterday and tried to setup a Raid-0 set. The two drives are identical (make/model) 500GB sata-II. Unfortunately, one of the drives was not formatted (or the wrong format) and when I rebooted, the system hung at the Raid ID/config step.
Now, when I try to create a RAID set, the motherboard's built-in Raid utility reports that the Status of one drive as ''Off Line''. The drive is otherwise fine. I have tried unplugging power and swapping data cables, and the problem followed the drive. I have reformatted both drives as well as run ''FixMbr'' and ''FixBoot'' from the Windows Recovery Console to no avail.
There is no way to re-enter the Raid setup utility with both drives connected (I can if I unplug the offending drive, which is no help). Western Digital tells me there is no ''Status'' recorded to the drive and the problem must be with the Raid Controller on my MoBo. (I have updated to the latest BIOS, dated 1/13/09). But as I noted, when swaping cables, the problem followed the drive (changing from ''ID: 2'' to ''ID:1'').
How do I reset the ''Status'' om my drive so I can setup my Raid?
i Have a 1tb with the same problem i can't get to match the dcm.
Does anyone know where i can get a 1TB with DCM#HBRCHV2AB?
I will buy it from anyone who has one

TestDisk is a powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.
