You should have posted the model of what you want this on, usually the reason is to add RAID so its faster.
You could use USB 3.0 ports for your drives and get the same speed you will get from Sata 2 using HDD.
Try just plugging it in, run windows update, then go to ADMIN tools, computer MGNT, storage, disk MGT, see if you can see the added storage, then just Look for the unpartitioned HDD usually represented by a black header
right click it and select format.
on the following instructions
Problem solved. There are 2 sets of jumpers on this PCI card. By deault they are set at 1-2 on both jumpers. So I changed them both to 2-3, reinstalled the card, restarted my PC and WoW!!!
There it was... working and recognizing both the HDD.
Thanks anyway and I hope that my answer gets posted as public so others can learn from my adventures... jejejeje.
I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.
1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed)
2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
