You have to enable the raid controller in the bios to see sata hdd nad have you pluged the power connector to hdd which is by the sata cable port then to your sata port in the motherboard, then install sata card drivers for your motherboard then reboot and after you have rebooted goto devise manager and see if it is reconised the driver if you have a yellow question mark then select it then right click then uninstall then click yes when removed driver goto the icon with spyglass and computer on and doubleclick on to search for new hardware once done reboot then your new hdd will be in the my computer icon.

hope this will help

Says no hard drive devices found


Is it a "new" drive, or a drive that you have been using for a long time, i.e., it could have failed.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power-cord.
Check that the "data" cable between the SATA drive and the motherboard is tightly connected at both ends.
Check that the "power" cable into the SATA drive is tightly connected.
Restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP.
Be sure that the BIOS-search for SATA devices is "enabled".

Note that Western Digital has a "Customer Loyalty" program; if you buy a new W.D. drive through their web-site, you qualify for a discount on the purchase.
