Bought new hd.
No way puter recognizes it.
Exchanged sata connections and cables, reset cmos.
Nothing but all sata ins recognize dvd recorder.
Then before giving up I tried again and hd was there
While installing xp, I created a partition, when asked to format it, puter couldn't access hd anymore.
Then stopped recognizing it again.
After 1 hour I'm trying again, it's formatting a partition but i guess soon it'll loose access to hd again.
Does anybody know something about it?
Of course first guess would cables but cables are good and sata connections too.
Puter recognizes dvd player and sometimes even this damn hd
BTW yes I google'd but seems like no answer could help the ones who had this problem.
Or helpers are crap guessers and know nothing about it or puters geniuses are hiding some tricks
