Question about Intel Motherboard
I have installed a VIA VT6421 Raid controller card on my PCI Motherboard running XP Pro. I do not want to run my main drive off of the Raid Card with the XP pro installed, but only want it to connect an external Hard Drive with a USB and an eSATA port to enable faster transfer to and from my external Hard drive. The card is shown as being enabled under hardware profiles, but when i connect my external drive, it does not show up under my computer or hardware profiles. It operates ok via USB I just cannot get the eSATA to work or display my external drive using eSATA only. Any ideas as I have not had any experience of RAID cards or SATA before. Thanks.
If you install the raid controller drive,it means it will shown the drives..but it not shown? is this what you mean? did you try to see in the computer management? if you dont know, check this out..right click my computer-manage-select disk management and check if your drive is there......this is only what i know about what you mean.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
dont forget to vote
hope this helps
