Default ASUS K8V-X won't see SATA drive

I just bought a WD1600JD SATA hard drive but can't use it cause the bios on my ASUS K8V-X motherboard won't see it.

I have tried everything and it just won't work. Took it back to the shop and they tried it out and it showed straight away. The shop even installed XP on it but it still won't show on my computer.

I upgraded to the latest BIOS but that doesn't make any difference

Could someone please help out as I don't want to be stuck with a hard drive I can't use

Many thanks in advance

Do you have more than one drive?

I have two IDE drives, tried installing the SATA drive with and without the IDE drives connected.

Make sure the SATA drive is in the SATA1 port, and make sure you set your BIOS to read from that drive only. There may be more than one place to set that.

There is only the one option "OnChip SATA Boot ROM"
