Any idea where i could find these?
What operating system? I see it listed as Windows 98/Me/2000/XP compatable.

Usually, you hit the Delete button during POST when the computer is first starting. You should be able to see the drives that the bios sees listed.

i went into the raid screen and saw that it sees my hard drive and i formatted it in that screen too, but it didnt help. During boot up the bios/raid screen comes up and it recognizes my hard drive but whenever windows boots up it still isnt seeing the drive

Wow, that's strange. At this point I think you should contact the manufacturer of the buslink adapter card. I can't think of anything else for you to check. You said earlier that Disk Management didn't see the drive. I'll post again if I come up with anything else.

yeah it doesn't show up in the device manager or disk management. I took some screenshots



see, nothing about the western digital. I emailed buslink a couple days ago but have yet to hear back from them.
