Default SATA Hard-Drive Help

Ive got my SATA HDD plugged into the power, ive got it connected to the SATA port on my mobo, but when I turn on my comp, it doesnt recognize it, even if I go into Bios, Ive got the SATA Raid Drivers installed. Ive also double chekced the wires, and looked at a visiual diagram, and everything is correct. What should I do? the HD is a WD drive i dont remember the HD im to lazy to open my comp right now

You've also checked the jumpers? I would say check Disk Management, but you say you can't see the HD in BIOS. If the drive is on cable select, try switching it around to Master- see if that will solve the issue, or visa versa.

SATA drives do not have jumpers

Can you feel the HD spinning? Try another power connector. Are you using one or both power adapters? I know most come with a SATA power connector and a molex connector
