Hi. I am having an issue with an IDE 80 GB WEstern Digital hard drive. I am using it as a storage drive in addition to a RAID 0 setup I have with two Raptors. I set the RAID 0 array as the primary HDD in the BIOS, and the 80 GB drive as the secondary drive. The storage drive is seen by the BIOS and is listed as IDE1. My problem is that when I start up the computer, I get to the desktop and go to my computer, only to find that my storage drive doesnt show up. I went into device manager, and the 80 GB storage drive is present there. I opened it up and it said that the device was working properly. Does anyone know how I can get it to show up in my computer so that I can use it?
