I reimaged an older Maxtor 20 GB drive, and I am not able to connect it to my internet connection.
The drivers are from the board manufacturer, MSI. Motherboard is MSI K8N Neo.
The OS is XP Pro with SP 2
There are 2 HD's in this pc. One is 250GB SATA Western Digital, and the other is the 20GB IDE Maxtor.
The 250GB SATA Western Digital connects fine. But the Maxtor refuses to connect. I think I tried everything - even a Repair installation. I called Comcast and let them restart the VOIP Modem, but it still wouldnt work. I reinstalled the MSI drivers 7 or 8 times but the Maxtor drive will not connect. I dont think BIOS has anything to do with it, but Im not 100% sure about that.
Both drives have the same software. Same MSI drivers.
Motherboard is MSI K8N Neo.
When I try to connect the lower explorer bar says, 'connecting to 188.8.131.52' or whatever my homepage 'Yahoo''s IP is. Thats strange in itself. My other pc's dont do that. The others just say 'waiting for www.yahoo'
and then connect. The Maxtor drive then gives the error: 'Page cannot be displayed.'
Have I missed something here? Cant I have a SATA and an IDE in the same PC?
