80gb Hard Drive Problems
I needed more space on my pc so i bought an extra hard drive. I installed it on the second IDE, set my first harddrive as a master drive and set my second as a cable select (as it didn't have instructions for a slave drive). Booted the compyter, but the BIOS didn't pick up the new hard drive. When i booted Windows it would pick up the new hardware but I couldn't see it in Windows Explorer or My Computer.
I then unplugged the second hard drive and replaced my 2 CD-ROMS with it. So I had one hard drive on IDE1 and one on IDE2. This worked fine and the BIOS regonised it. However I can't plug both CD Roms and two hard drives because the IDE cables aren't long enough.
Does anyone have any idea what im doing wrong? Help would be greatly appreciated!
