Default Re: Case of the Missing Hard Drives

I have noticed on these larger drives that pull more amps to spin up that they cause cause issues when multiple ones are installed... I have to plug mine up to different rails just so they show up in the BIOS, all on the same rail, and only 2 out of the 5 will work... So what sort of PSU do you have, and what are your other specs?

My power supply was just recently upgraded to a 750watt monster when my old one suddenly conced out on me.

Thanks for all the help guys, I was finally able to get the issue resolved. My new hard drive was a samsung and the old one was a western digital. I mixed them up and thought the new one was WD. While I was surfing the web I ran across a western digital installation program. Wasn't exactly what I needed, but it did the job and allowed me to install my spanking new terabyte of storage space. Now it sits, spinning like a trooper as it hungrily devours gig after gig of downloaded media and videogame goodness.
