Also take a look into the device manager (right clck on my computer /properties../hardware ....Here you should be able to see t in the list ...if not .., right click on computer and choose to scan for hardware changes....this will scan for devices and show you the device even if it is not installed..
also may be using a raid driver that it is not installed on your computer cause you didn't used it ..go to bios..default the system by selecting optimal factory defaults ..and after that save changes by pressing F10..
restart and insert the motherboard drivers disk and install the raid driver from the list ..(I sow that some of them are on Ieee 1394 ..installing a driver for the IEEE 1394 bus can be a option you have to get in mind..Just search for it on the motherboard manufactirer site...but it is built in windows since Xp..and defaulting the system ..probably make it functional..if it is the case..
if nothing it and check the power supplies for each unit in part if it is multiple (hdd) and be sure they are plugged well and functional ...You should hear them work ..

My PC doesn't recognize the external drive. I think PNP is working properly because other devices are immediately recognized.

you need to go to delet all the drivers that you have by going to control panel, system, device maanger and delet the drivers reboot and the system will start reading asll your drivers again and it should work..
