If you have a SATA HDD that connects with E-Sata, the device needs to be plugged into a power supply as well as the sata port.
If it connects via USB, your computer should just pick it up.
If it is USB and has no power supply, you may need to use a Y connector to plug it into 2 usb ports to get the power it needs

500 Gb sata hdd not detected on k8mm-v motherboard


Find in your BIOS if you have an option that says configure SATA as IDE, AHCI and raid. Set it at IDE and try again to install the OS. After intaling do not switch back because it will not work.

HOW TO CHANGE 320GB SATA HDD TO 500GB SATA


Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.

Anyway, if your bios dosent detect the driver u probably need to update the bios drivers.
Go to MSI site:

Instal LIVE UPDATE and let msi check you computer for laterst drivers u need to instal

Is my LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB fried/dead???


You're not missing any step at all, because with SATA hard drive if its really working your computer should
automatically detect it and since this hard drive suddenly stop working there's a possibility that its already
fried but if you want you can try this hard drive again to a different computer and if still not detected by
second computer its already dead.........
