If CMOS can't see it than Windows can't either. Make sure that the SATA ports aren't disabled in CMOS. Otherwise the drive, its cable, or the power lead, may be faulty. It would be easy to try the drive in another computer as a test.

Optiarc DVD RW 24x SATA - AD5260S not detected in Windows 8.1 pro x64


I would first go to bios settings and make sure the SATA is set to "enabled" or "on" or something like that. Otherwise, Windows 8.1 would probably detect the drive.

When installing a new hard drive, a PC may not recognize the hard drive. Incorrect cable installations, jumper settings and BIOS settings may cause the computer to be unable to detect your hard drive. Due to the vast differences in hard drive types (IDE versus SATA) and brands, motherboard brands and types, and BIOS types and configurations, please download or acquire your motherboard and hard drive manufacturers' documentation prior to acquiring a hard drive. Make sure that the type of hard drive you plan to purchase is compatible with the motherboard.
Shut down the computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices. Clip the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and attach the bracelet to your wrist. Remove the computer's side panel. (Cases vary. Some will require a small Phillips screwdriver for removal and others feature screwless designs. Please see your case manual if you are unsure.) Locate the newly installed hard drive. Check that two cables are running from the hard drive to the motherboard and to the power supply. If you see only one cable or if either of the cables are not securely seated, plug in the appropriate connector(s). Leave the case's side panel off for now. Reconnect the power cable, monitor cable, and keyboard and mouse connections. Restart the computer. Enter your BIOS immediately. (Your BIOS usually alerts you to the key required to adjust settings. If your screen does not show this information or if you are unsure, consult your motherboard manual.) If it is an IDE hard drive, enter the IDE settings. The BIOS should show the hard drive. Configure it as primary or secondary, according to your computer's configuration. (If you have only one drive, set this to primary. Otherwise, set as secondary.) Save your settings, and exit the BIOS. Once you are certain that the the PC is recognizing the hard drive, replace the side panel. Detect a SATA Hard Disk If you have connected a SATA (serial ATA) hard drive to your computer but are not able to access the files on it, then your system may not be detecting the drive correctly. On either a PC or Mac computer, you can manually detect and mount a hard drive that is locally connected. Once properly detected, the drive will become available for file transfer.
Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your PC computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open the Start menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon. Open the "Administrative Tools" folder and double-click on the "Computer Management" icon. Go to the "Disk Management" tool on the left side of the control panel window. This brings up a list of all drives currently connected to your computer. Right-click on the SATA drive that you want your computer to detect and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click on the "Add" button and then select the drive letter that you want to be assigned to the SATA hard drive. Click "OK" to save the settings and detect the SATA drive. b> Mac Instructions b> Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your Mac computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open a new Finder window and navigate to the "Utilities" folder, which is located in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive. Double-click on the "Disk Utility" icon. Highlight the SATA hard drive that you want your computer to detect from the list of connected drives on the left side of the window. Click on the "Mount" button at the top of the window to have the system manually detect the SATA drive. Hope this helps.

Hello,Please check the BIOS to see if the SATA ports are enabled. Older boards will disable the sata ports in the BIOS by default. To enter the BIOS, hit the DEl key as soon as you boot the PC.
If ports are enabled, then you probably have to format the drive.Heres how:1. Right-click My Computer and select Manage.
2. Under Storage, click Disk Management on the left pane.
STEP 3 - Format the device / drive / MP3 player
1. Right-click on the 1 TB drive you want to format then select Format.Windows will not recognize the drives file system and will mount it with a drive letter. ex; E:

It is not showing up at all in (my computer). it open and will close, but doesn't work


do it only if u r a professional..

i gotta know: is ur drive pata/sata and the device make n model..
assuming that ur drive is pata, n u r a professional n aware of bios/cmos setup utility handling..!!
open up ur system cabinet and see if all the data cables n jumper settings at the back of the drives (master/slave selection)..itz most important..!!
however, at the bootup (0.29sec) start pressing briskly the key to enter cmos utility or bios setup (eg. F1/F2/F10/Del as applicable)..glance in the standard settings if r detected individually..change the 'Mode' if m/b is hybrid type(both SATA+PATA) : Native/Compatible/Enhanced (as applicable)..
see if ur device needs any additional driver or not, if so try downloading..
also try checking itz data cable for loose or faulty..
above all explanation is applicable only if itz not being detected by the m/b or system..(not for reading or writing problem)..

contact ur system admin/vendor....

Windows setup does not see sata drive K8VGA-m


Good day sir, if your hard drive is bad it cannot be detected, but lets review first several reasons why it cannot be detected by your motherboard;
  • check the master / slave setup, if youre hard drive is sata, this is not applicable.
  • check your connection, both data and power cable, to and from the hard drive. (ribbon ide cable or red sata data cable)
  • Still cannot be detected? try to reset your CMOS setup by using the cmos battery jumper. after reset, review the CMOS settings, and enable your IDE/SATA drives. test again.
  • Stiil doesn't work? bring it to a friend who has a PC and try to test your hard drive to any available good PC, to check if your drive is bad.
If your hard drive is good, chances are your motherboard IDE/SATA part is bad, you may need to buy a PCI to SATA/IDE card. connect this card to any available PCI slot, connect your hard drive. hope this helps.

In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)

Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive, if this is the primary HD, set it to master, if secondary, set it to slave, if secondary still does not recognize, switch the ide cable so that the two drives are not on the same one.
