alright.. so heres the deal...
I have XP pro on my HDD and so i took it out and put my slave drive as my master and started to install linux to see if even that would work.. but linux didnt detect it either
... i have no clue whats wrong..
I ran a Belarc Advisor thing and it saw the Western Digital drive installed and the status was healthy..
Even device manager sees the drive.. but it doesnt have a letter assigned and disk management wont see it so i cant asssign one either..
This makes me think that maybe its not formatted right since it has to be working for the BIOS, Windows Device Manager and the Belarc Advisor to all see it there.
Im so confused.. is there a program i can run to fix this? anything at all?
