My internal hdds (12 of them) are all Sata, configured as IDE. I never had a problem until now. One of them failed and I replaced it with 1T Model WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 Black Caviar 64mb cache. The label on the drive says: "jumpered pins 3-4 enables PUIS. Pins 5-6 limits PHY to 3bgps" I don't know what this means. I never had to change jumpers on a hdd. My pc and disk mgmt always recognized new hdds right away. I would change the configuration from Dynamic to Basic, do a quick format and then start using them.
I then went into "Add Hardware" but the hdd isn't listed there either.
Also, another strange thing came up in Disk Mgmt. Some of the hdds that are listed in My Computer are no longer listed in Disk Management. I can access the hdds though and have been using them for a couple of years.
Could it be that I need a driver for these hdds? I don't know what to get or where to get it though.
Can someone help?
