Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 Pro Rev 3.1
New Drive: WD 1TB
Storage Drive: WD Black 1TB
Hey guys, I got a new Hard Drive so I installed windows and motherboard drivers on it. Everything is working fine but it is not detecting my 1TB storage drive when I go into My Computer. It does detect another 3TB storage drive though which doesn't make sense.
The storage drive is detected in BIOS, and also, when I took out my new drive and replaced it with my older drive with windows installed on it, the storage drive shows up... I did this just in case to see if the drive was working properly.
This motherboard although I like it, tends to act a bit funky. Also previously, the old storage drive was connected via SATA 6.0 on my previous windows install. Now I have my current drive connected in SATA 6.0 as well as another 3TB storage drive which showed up just fine right from the start. The drive I'm having problems with is now connected into SATA 3.0 port... maybe this is the problem?
I am guessing on a new windows installed drive, I need to reformat that storage drive to make it work but then I will lose nearly 1TB of important document files.. so is there anyway to fix this with a driver or something? I read somewhere I need to install a controller chip driver, whatever that means. I installed all drivers from the motherboard CD so I doubt I missed something.
Here is the link to the motherboard drivers:
