umm from decyphering your message, i think you are having a problem, when you plug in the new harddrive it does not show up...
if that is the case... try these:
- Check all connections to the Harddrive, then check those connections to your motherboard, in other words, make sure your harddrive is completly connected to your mobo
- Check the jumpers, I dont remember how to do them... SOMEONE ON CF PLEASE EXPLAIN.
Thats all I know how to do.
