Default Cant find HDD on BIOS

When i go into my bios, it doesnt seem to find my new HDD when its on Auto. I plug in my old, Maxtor ATA drive and put the master on auto and it finds it fine. How do i set my new HDD to master and my old one to slave. I have a few settings to chose from, CD-ROM, MO, Other ATAGP(?) device but my new HDD isnt listed. I put the slave and master on Auto setting and the master detects the Maxtor. When i dont plug in the Maxtor, and plug in my new HDD and put them both on auto, it still doesnt find it.

Send a message via ICQ to smartech

microbell's advice will work if you connect both disks to one IDE (connect them to the same cable).
