1-Get the latest Bios for ur motherboard.

2- If you are connecting the 160 gig hdd together with ur new 200 gb , then try connecting -only- your new hdd.

3- Just to ensure its not a master/slave issue....unplug all ur CD-ROM(s) drivers ( power and IDE cables ) , in other words , make ONLY ur 200 hdd connected and give it a try.

Hope this helps

You need to run fdisk and set a partition.Then format then re boot it will detect it then.You can use a win 98 boot disk to run FDISK.

go see what disk management has to say about it. settings - controal panel - administrative tools - computer management. then click on disk management. (on xp and win2k) It should see the disk then you can format it and get it rolling.
