I have a 40GB Maxtor hard drive installed which xp is installed on.
I have a tiny 3.9 GB hard drive just for some files.
I purchased a 160GB SATA DiamondMax 10 (maxtor) yesterday and it arrived today, its for extra storage (Games etc)
I already had installed all necessary drivers when i first got my Motherboard Asrock K8-upgrade.
I attached the SATA drive and BIOS recognises it. Its at non-raid (dunno what that means).
It doesnt show up in my computer most likely because its no partitioned and formatted.
Went to Disk Management to format the drive but it gives an error and the drive disappears.
I tried partitioning it with Partition Magic 8 which also gives an error.
What do i do now?
Thanks in advance for any help
