Default Driver for ide controller card?

I just got my computer fixed at a shop and they installed a ide controller so I can hook up mi second hard drive. When I got windows installed my second hard drive is not being detected on the card so I was wondering where to get a vista compatable driver. All i know is the manufacturer of the card is promise but since i didn't actually install the card myself that is all the info I have.

this is what it says in the device manager



its the mass storage controller

Promise only lists having made one of those:

Internet Product Section -

Drives under downloads, I have no way of knowing if they're vista compatible.

You should try emailing the company. If they can't get you one- take the card back where you bought it and tell them its nonfunctional.

Is your new HD set as the slave? Is it possible it detected the new HD and tried to boot from it?
