Yes, but you must connect it to the native channel. The other channels are for connecting two identical HDDs.

There is no 'native'channel that I can see. All that is mentioned in the manual is the two SATA ports. So can i assume they only support disks setup as a RAID?

You have to have a native channel. Considering you only have two SATA ports, try connecting the HDD into the other one.

P.S.: Do you have the ASUS P4S800D, or the ASUS P4S800D Deluxe?

i had this problem as well, i had 4 SATA ports

2 for RAID

and

2 regular connections

they were in different places on the motherboard so i suggest you find the SATA1 port and plugging into that.

Did you switch the SATA cable into the other port?
