Since it is SATA how did you go about installing it? Did you use a card in a PCI slot or was the mother board already equiped with SATA connections?

If it was already equiped check the BIOS and make sure that the Drive is turned on. By default SATA drives are turned off. You have to manually go into the BIOS and turn them on to be recognized. At least on my SATA system thats how it is done.

If it was done via a card did you install the drivers for the card and did they take? That would be the only thing i can think of that wouldnt allow you to access the drive. Unless you have to manually turn the drive on thru the card in order for it to be rocgnized.
